DETROIT (AP) — Two Detroit men charged in the beating of a motorist after he collided with their vehicle while driving the wrong way on a city street have waived key hearings in the case.
The Detroit News reports (http://bit.ly/1jbBetx ) 33-year-old Demond Williams and 20-year-old Toriano Williams on Tuesday waived preliminary hearings in the case in 36th District Court. They're scheduled to make initial appearances on July 22 in trial court.
They're charged in the June 7 beating of 34-year-old Nate Szczerbinski (sher-BIN'-skee) of Grosse Pointe Park. Charges include assault with intent to do great bodily harm and aggravated assault.
Szczerbinski is white and told police several black men beat him and called him racially derogatory names. The prosecutor's office says it brought charges based on what could be proven in court.
