Detroit Mayor to Stand Trial for Assault
(wgvu) - DETROIT (AP) - A judge has ruled that there's enough evidence
for Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick to stand trial on assault
charges stemming from a confrontation with two investigators.
Two investigators testified Friday that an angry Kilpatrick
shoved one of them into the other and made racial remarks while
they were trying to deliver a subpoena to a Kilpatrick friend.
Judge Ronald Giles made the ruling after hearing several hours
of testimony and arguments in 36th District Court.
A sheriff's detective says the mayor shoved him into another
investigator when he was trying to deliver a subpoena in a separate
perjury case to a Kilpatrick friend in July.
Kilpatrick's attorneys have denied an assault took place.
