A New Hampshire man allegedly attempted to topple a President Donald Trump campaign tent and slapped a nearby teenager across the face after he exited a polling place in Windham during the state’s presidential primary Tuesday evening.
Patrick Bradley, 34, of Lisa Road, Windham, was arrested Thursday after an investigation and is being charged with three counts of simple assault (a class A misdemeanor) and one count of disorderly conduct (a violation), according to a news release from Windham police. He’s being held on $5,000 cash bail, as well as an administrative hold for a probation violation. His arraignment is set for Friday.
The alleged incident took place around 6:12 p.m. outside of Windham High School. Police said Bradley walked out of the school, which was serving as a polling place. Then, as he walked past the Trump campaign tent, which had “several campaign supporters / workers” inside, he allegedly slapped a 15-year-old and then allegedly assaulted two adults who attempted to help the teen.
Along with allegedly trying to knock over the tent, he threw Trump campaign signs, authorities said.
