DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The man who attempted to rush the stage at a Donald Trump rally earlier this year violated his bond agreement with the judge to meet with an academic advisor.
It happened July 11 when Thomas DiMassimo reportedly left his home from 12:47 to 1:47 p.m., though he later admitted in court that he left to attend school-related business. He provided a letter reportedly from an academic advisor confirming his location.
DiMassimo took responsibility for the violation in federal court on Monday.
Typically DiMassimo is permitted to leave his residence for school-related matters if those matters are pre-approved and pre-planned. This case was reportedly not pre-planned, according to court testimony Monday. During his hearing it was found that he did violate his bond, but that his bond will not be revoked.
DiMassimo told the court that while he was previously in jail, he missed a lab for a class he was taking at Wright State University, and met with his advisor today to address that issue. DiMassimo told the court that he since the matter was school-related, he didn’t have to schedule it.
