Mesa dad pleads not guilty to school assault charges
PHOENIX -- A Mesa man accused of assaulting three teachers and the principal at his son's elementary school has pleaded not guilty.
Newley Ryan Broughton appeared Wednesday in Maricopa County Superior Court to face charges stemming from the Jan. 30 incident at Madison Elementary School in Mesa.
Police said Broughton became belligerent when he tried to pick up his 5-year-old son at the school despite a court order that restricted when he could pick up the boy.
