Trial pushed back for Waterloo officer accused of road rage and assault
UPDATE: WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - The trial for Waterloo police officer who was charged in connection with what authorities say was a road rage incident, has been pushed back to January 10, 2017 at 9:00 a.m.
The trial for a Waterloo police officer who was charged in connection with what authorities say was a road rage incident, will begin Tuesday, November 15th.
Court records say 45-year-old Corbin Payne pleaded not guilty to a charge of assault causing bodily injury.
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. That man driving the other vehicle was a delivery driver for East China restaurant in Waterloo.
Payne was placed on paid administrative leave, and police say the department intended to conduct an internal investigation.
Leslie Hospitality owner Edwin Leslie says he doesn't have anything to hide, and to prove it he invited the public to view all of the documents, emails, agreements, and financial statements related to the deal at a public meeting this morning.
