Phoenix-area man accused in school assault gets probation

PHOENIX -- A man accused of assaulting three teachers and the principal at a Mesa elementary school has been sentenced to 18 months of unsupervised probation.

Maricopa County prosecutors said 36-year-old Newley Ryan Broughton was sentenced Friday.

Mesa police said Broughton tried to pick up his 5-year-old son at Madison Elementary on Jan. 30 in violation of a court order.

The order stems from a joint custody agreement with his ex-girlfriend that limits Broughton to picking his son up only on certain days.

Broughton is said to have become belligerent when the principal and teachers told him he wasn't allowed to take his son.

He was charged with counts of aggravated assault and interference with an educational institution.
