Hate Crime Charges Possible After Incident At Rush Game

Jan 28, 2015

An incident at Saturday night’s Rush hockey game in Rapid City may result in hate crime and assault charges.

The group of American Horse School children were sitting below the Q box in the Rush ice hockey arena when the men above poured beer and shouted racial slurs at them.

57 students from American Horse School were on a trip from Pine Ridge to attend the game as reward for good behavior and academic achievement.  
 
But in the third period a group of white men in a rented suite above the children’s seating area allegedly poured beer down on to the students and shouted racial slurs.   

The school group left the game early out of concern for student safety.
