[Kansas City.com] A Kansas City municipal judge set a new court date Wednesday for Chiefs running back Larry Johnson in one of his simple-assault cases.
After a brief hearing, Presiding Judge Elena M. Franco agreed to a request from Johnson’s lawyer, Kevin E.J. Regan, to postpone further action on the case until Jan. 21.
Authorities charged Johnson with the municipal ordinance violation in October after a woman alleged that he had pushed her in a nightclub in February.
Regan said he also would ask for a delay in Johnson’s second assault case, which is scheduled to be heard today.
