    An officer was assaulted in Maryland after a fight broke out at a high school football game over clothing supportive of President Donald Trump, authorities said.

    The officer, who is with the Anne Arundel County Police Department, received treatment for a concussion, the Capital Gazette reported Sunday.

    Police Sgt. Jackie Davis said the fight happened Sept. 27 in Glen Burnie during a game between Old Mill and North County high schools. A juvenile has been charged. 

    Davis says spectators hurled insults at each other over the clothing. The officer was punched twice in the head as people were being escorted out of the stadium, the Capital Gazette reported.

    Bob Mosier with Anne Arundel County Public Schools said top school administrators have begun attending some games to keep an eye out for potential problems.
