Dad attacked crossing guard outside elementary school
It happened right outside the Mary R. Fisher Elementary School in Thompson.
School officials said 31-year-old Jason Beshaw, a local parent, tried to bypass the designated flow of traffic.
The crossing guard tried to stop the car from entering the restricted area, and was struck.
That’s when Beshaw jumped out of the car and physically assaulted the crossing guard, officials said.
The crossing guard was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Beshaw was taken into custody by state police.
He was charged with risk of injury to a child, second-degree breach of peace, third-degree assault, and second-degree reckless endangerment.
School officials said some parents and students did witness this incident.
