Man who crashed KC mayor’s speech gets probation

(KANSAS CITY, Mo., AP) — A 32-year-old man has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges for disrupting Kansas City Mayor Sly James’ State of the City address last year.

Derron Black of Kansas City was sentenced Wednesday to one year of probation for resisting arrest and obstruction of government operations as part of a plea deal. Imposition of the sentence was suspended on the conditions that Black serve 10 days of shock jail time, attend an anger management class, continue receiving mental health counseling and continue bond conditions already in place.

Those conditions include staying a safe distance from James and his security detail.

Black initially was charged with misdemeanor assault on a law enforcement officer after the March 2013 incident, but that charge was changed to resisting arrest as part of the plea deal.
