Man Sues Air Force After Airmen Allegedly Assault Him For Invoking God During Flag Ceremony

Two men filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Air Force on Monday after airmen assaulted one of them for invoking God during a retirement ceremony.

Airmen assaulted Ogscar Rodriguez, Jr. and forcibly dragged him out of Chuck Roberson’s 2016 retirement ceremony for mentioning God during a flag folding ceremony Roberson had invited him to conduct. First Liberty Institute lawyers filed the lawsuit on behalf of veterans Rodriguez and Roberson when they discovered the Air Force, which refused to issue an apology, had not conducted an investigation into the allegations of assault and violations of the Fourth and Fifth Amendments.
