Judge: Detroit mayor to stand trial on assault charges

DETROIT A judge has ruled that there's enough evidence for Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick to stand trial on assault charges stemming from a confrontation with two investigators.

Two investigators testified Friday that an angry Kilpatrick shoved one of them into the other and made racial remarks while they were trying to deliver a subpoena to a Kilpatrick friend.

Judge Ronald Giles made the ruling after hearing several hours of testimony and arguments in 36th District Court.

A sheriff's detective says the mayor shoved him into another investigator when he was trying to deliver a subpoena in a separate perjury case to a Kilpatrick friend in July.

Kilpatrick's attorneys have denied an assault took place.
