PHOENIX - A mistrial has been declared in the case of a man accused of assaulting four people at his son’s school in Mesa.
A new trial date of September 30 has been set for 36-year-old Newley Broughton who is accused of allegedly attacking three teachers and the principal at Madison Elementary School in Mesa last January.
Police said Broughton shoved the teachers when they tried to stop him from picking up his son from school.
Police said Broughton had a joint custody agreement with his ex-girlfriend that prevented him from picking up his son on specific days.
Broughton was arrested at his home and the boy was released to his mother.
Broughton was held on charges of aggravated assault and interference with an educational institution.
The jury could not reach a verdict on any counts and Commissioner Christine Mulleneaux declared a mistrial.
