Man arrested at Trump rally told police act was preplanned

A man arrested after trying to jump on the stage at Republican Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Dayton reportedly told police he planned to grab the microphone and yell that Trump is a racist but didn’t intend to hurt anyone.
    
The Dayton Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/1ph5M0O) that it has obtained a police report that says 22-year-old Thomas DiMassimo told officers that he’d given his car keys to his girlfriend at Saturday’s rally anticipating that he’d be arrested. DiMassimo, of Fairborn, was charged with misdemeanor inducing panic and disorderly conduct. He was released on bail.
    
DiMassimo, an acting student with Wright State University’s theater program, couldn’t be reached for comment. It’s unclear if he has an attorney.
    
Trump was campaigning ahead of Tuesday’s Ohio primary.
