ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) - Police say a teen wearing a cap with a Donald Trump campaign slogan was beaten and kicked as hundreds of students staged a walk-out to protest Trump's election.
 
Rockville Police spokesman Maj. Michael England says the 15-year-old Richard Montgomery High School student wearing a "Make America Great Again" cap was participating in the walk-out Wednesday with about 300 to 500 students from the school. Students marched to the county courthouse carrying signs and chanting "Love Trumps Hate!"
 
England says the teen's argument with one person turned violent and four others jumped in. He says the student was "woozy" and couldn't remember what happened, but England believes the teen's injuries are minor. No charges were filed, but the incident is under investigation.
 
England says the crowd was otherwise peaceful.
