Trial for Jamaal Tinsley, Marquis Daniels Delayed


The trial of Indiana Pacers players Jamaal Tinsley and Marquis Daniels on charges stemming from a bar fight has been delayed a third time.

The trial was to begin Jan. 14, but was rescheduled for March 17 because a new prosecutor is handling the case, spokesman Matthew Symons of the Marion County prosecutor’s office said Friday. The defense asked for the earlier postponements in September and December.

Tinsley was indicted on a felony charge of intimidation and misdemeanor counts of battery, disorderly conduct and intimidation in connection with a fight last February at the 8 Seconds Saloon. Daniels is charged with battery and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors. [Click here for more from SI.com.]
