Secret Service Rushes Stage to Protect Donald Trump at Ohio Rally

Thomas Dimassimo jumped the bike racks and tried to climb onto the stage

A Donald Trump rally took a dramatic turn Saturday when a disturbance broke out behind the GOP front-runner — causing Secret Service agents to jump on stage and form a wall around the candidate amid the commotion, NBC News reported.

A campaign spokeswoman said that a man at the Dayton, Ohio, event "attempted to breach the secure buffer and was removed rapidly and professionally."

The suspect, identified as 32-year-old Thomas Dimassimo, was charged with disorderly conduct and inducing panic — both misdemeanors, Chief Mike Etter of the Dayton Airport Police Department told NBC News.

The incident happened a day after Trump canceled a rally in Chicago where supporters and protesters broke into fights even before the controversial candidate took the stage.
