The Gateway Pundit has obtained photographs corroborating the account of a father who claims Denver Public school guards harassed, assaulted and conspired to frame him after he confronted school officials for coercing and trying to bribe his 7-year-old son into wearing a mask.
As the Gateway Pundit reported, Anthony Chavez, a 42-year-old, Native American single father, informed Lowry Elementary School in Denver, Colorado in December that his son Chase would no longer continue wearing masks at school immediately after Gov. Jarid Polis rescinded the mask mandate and declared “the [COVID 19] emergency is over.
Each day that Chase attended school without a mask, he told his father about how he was harassed, segregated, or penalized.
The conflict over the school’s insistence on enforcing COVID 19 “safety” mandates and refusal to allow Chase to keep his face uncovered escalated, resulted in Chavez being put on house arrest and an obese teacher allegedly putting the 7-year old Chase in a restraint hold and throwing him across the room.
When Chase returned to his second-grade classroom without a mask, teachers began putting screens around his desk that was moved six feet away from where the other students were seated, teachers instructed him to walk ahead of the class as they walked in line through the hallways and persistently asked him to wear a mask.
Assistant Principal LaZedrick Jemison tried to entice and bribe Chase to put a mask on by offering him chips, candy and extra recess if he complied.
Chavez’s requested via email that Jemison stop coercing his son to wear a mask, but received no response. He then met with Jemison at the school to address the issue. Footage obtained by the Denver Public Police recorded by one of the school administrators shows the heated exchange.
As the school continued to alienate and segregate Chase from his peers, Chavez met with Jemison’s boss, District Instructional Supervisor Kevin King to remedy the situation. He claims King warned him to send Chase to school in a mask while attorneys and medical professionals determine whether to adhere to the governor’s recent COVID 19 orders.
Days later, on January 10, Chavez received notice that he was “barred from entering onto the school grounds.”

A two-month crusade with the Denver Public School district over the mask mandate escalated to Chavez’s arrest.
On January 25, the principal and gym teacher walked Chase out of gym class for refusing to wear a mask and made him wait in a hall where he was surrounded by a team of security guards until dismissal. Two days later, Chavez was arrested for assault and trespassing after dropping Chase off at school.
Chavez maintains that Denver Public School Security Guard Robert Grossaint tried to stop him from leaving the school premises – using his body as a barricade to block him from walking forwards before wrestling him to the ground – to “manufacture a trespassing charge:”
This guy, security guard Robert Grossaint, followed me. I was recording. That morning at drop-off, I gave my son a hug. My son walks into the building and Grossaint, a chief deputy who had harassed me 13 days in a row, told me, ‘You’ve been given notice. You can’t trespass here. You can go to jail.’
I said, ‘You are a public official; you’re bonded and insured, and I have your information’ – this triggered him. He walks a little ahead of me towards the exit, where his jurisdiction ends. He stops and blocks me. I told him he does not have the right to block me. Then he grabs me and punches me in the chest while he grabs my shirt – like, a quick pull punch. Then stuck his finger in my face. We wrestled all the way through the parking lot. I was tripping and tumbling while I trying to get to my truck. This is false imprisonment.
I said, ‘Get your hands off me, get your hands off me!’ At this point I turned around; my back was facing the public property – not to be held there captive. My instincts kicked in. This individual has been waiting for this conflict, he initiated the conflict, and he initiated the physical contact.
I had several opportunities to punch this guy, but I didn’t. I was trying to record at the same time. I fended them both off.
Donations made to Chavez’s legal fund by Gateway Pundit readers have allowed him to retain private legal counsel.
Denver Police are ignoring the exculpatory surveillance footage and the district attorney is so far siding with the police, Chavez’s attorney Robert Biondiono told the Gateway Pundit.
“The assault is amazing. The video is unbelievable. The security guards totally assaulted my client,” he said. “Normally, the DA would look at this footage and dismiss the case — that would be the normal course of business. The problem here is they’ve dug their heels in so hard to protect these government workers or agents or whatever you want to call them that I may have to go to trial on a case they literally fabricated. I have handled over 6,000 heavy criminal cases. The school’s assault of my client Anthony Chavez is pretty bad. He got assaulted all you have to do is watch the surveillance video. The police ignored the surveillance footage. They ignored Mr. Chavez’s video. It’s not good.
“If you look at it generally, they are basically asking Mr. Chavez to commit child abuse because he is not allowed legally to have his son who is 7-years-old — what’s he going to walk a half a mile to the school? How does he even get in the building? That would be placing his son in a negligent situation. The school is creating a situation whereby the parent would have to break the law to comply with their order. It’s insane. His son has been with him solely since he was 6 months old. He doesn’t have a mom in the kid’s life. We are dealing with one parent who is placed in an abusive situation, not by choice.”
After further review, the Gateway Pundit will publish the surveillance footage and footage obtained from guards and police officers, who apprehended Chavez.
