DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — With the election over, a federal judge has ended probation for an Ohio man who tried to rush a Donald Trump rally stage.

Judge Sharon Ovington's Thursday order says she cut short a scheduled, one-year probation for Thomas DiMassimo based on his probation officer's recommendation and without objection from the U.S. attorney's office.

She fined him $250 in July and ordered him to stay away from "any Republican presidential event," after earlier warning him against going to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

DiMassimo pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of illegally entering a restricted area.

The then-Wright State University student was arrested March 12 at the future President-elect's Dayton-area airport hangar rally. He said he hoped to grab the microphone to show people they could stand up to Trump.
