CREVE COEUR, Mo. (AP) - Police say Anheuser-Busch heir William "Billy" Busch was cited with assault after intervening in an altercation between his son and a fellow sixth-grader at a basketball practice.

Police said in a news release Saturday that it was reported that the 58-year-old Busch grabbed the 11-year-old student and pushed him into a wall in November at the gym at Chaminade College Preparatory School. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that other adults separated Busch and the child. Police say the child told investigators he wasn't injured.

Busch received a summons for fourth-degree assault, a municipal ordinance violation.

Busch's attorney, Scott Rosenblum, said in a statement that Busch intervened after school personnel failed to react when his son was "bullied - actually sucker-punched - by a much larger middle school student."
