Woman Arrested After Hitting Man at Red Wave Rally

Boise (670 KBOI News) – Across the nation, we hear stories of political incivility…but that’s in other cities, right?

It happened Sunday on the Idaho Capitol steps, at a Republican get out the vote rally.

Pam Hemphill was videoing the Red Wave Rally, when three protesters showed up and began arguing with ralliers. At one point, Hemphill says a woman got agitated and threw a punch or slap.

“I was trying to calm them down, letting them know that we could listen to them, but we have to do it in a civil manner,” said Hemphill.  “But they were just kids screaming, yelling, talking over me.  Then the gentleman came over, and started talking to her, disputing with her, giving her some actual facts, then she just lost it and hit him right in the face.”

That woman, Samantha Lowman, ran off, but was later arrested and charged with misdemeanor battery.

Spring football fans are true fans

Football fans love to sit in judgment.  It’s part of the fun of watching the game.  When a pass play doesn’t work, it’s fun to turn to the guy next to you and say, “I don’t understand why they’re not running the ball.”  When a running play goes nowhere, it’s fun to say, “They should…
