Trial set for Waterloo officer accused of road rage

Posted: Updated:

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - A November trial has been scheduled for a Waterloo police officer who was charged in connection with what authorities say was a road rage incident.

Court records say 45-year-old Corbin Payne has pleaded not guilty to a charge of assault causing bodily injury. His trial is scheduled to begin Nov. 15.

Authorities have said Payne, a lieutenant with the Waterloo Police Department, accused the driver of another vehicle of cutting off the car Payne was riding in June 12. Authorities say he struck the other vehicle and grabbed the driver.

Payne was placed on paid administrative leave, and police say the department intended to conduct an internal investigation.
