ORANGE PARK, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a man struck a 12-year-old girl in the face with a flagpole during a small rally for President Donald Trump near a Florida intersection.
The Florida Times-Union reports that 67-year-old Norbert Logsdon Jr. was charged last week with child abuse without great bodily harm.
Clay County deputies say Logsdon and others had been participating in a sidewalk support event for Trump.
The girl had been riding in a car with her mother, who exchanged taunts with Logsdon.
A video appeared to show Logsdon approach the vehicle, stick the flagpole through an open car window and hit the girl.
It's unclear whether Logsdon has an attorney who could comment.
