MESA, AZ - A Mesa man is behind bars for allegedly assaulting four teachers at his son's school Wednesday.
Mesa police Sgt. Tony Landato said Newley Broughton, 36, shoved the teachers when they tried to keep him from picking up his 5-year-old son from Madison Elementary School.
Landato said Broughton has a joint custody agreement with his ex-girlfriend that prevents him from picking up his son on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
Broughton was arrested at his home and his son was released to his mother.
Landato said Broughton is being held on charges of aggravated assault and interference with an educational institution.
