INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -The trial of Indiana Pacers players Jamaal Tinsley and Marquis Daniels stemming from a bar fight almost a year ago was delayed until Jan. 14.
Defense attorney James Voyles confirmed the new date Wednesday. The trial was to have begun Monday, but Voyles requested the delay, the second since September, because the Pacers play at Cleveland on Tuesday.
A Marion Superior Court jury is expected to hear three days of testimony.
A grand jury indicted Tinsley on a felony charge of intimidation and misdemeanor counts of battery, disorderly conduct and intimidation in connection with the Feb. 6 fight. Daniels is charged with battery and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors.
According to a police report, the bar manager said Tinsley threatened to kill him during the fight. The confrontation with the players followed another fight involving a person who employees thought was trying to steal coats from the coat check area, police said.
