HONOLULU (CBSDC/AP) — A Honolulu nightclub owner says he’s not guilty of assaulting Washington Redskins offensive tackle Trent Williams at his club two days before this year’s Pro Bowl.
Michael Miske Jr. is charged with second degree assault. He entered his plea at Circuit Court in Honolulu Monday.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports Miske’s trial is set for the week of April 8.
Court records show Miske is free on $250,000 bail.
Police say Miske hit Williams on the head with a dangerous instrument at M Nightclub on Jan. 25. Williams needed stitches to his head and was unable to play in the Pro Bowl.
Two other men were charged with misdemeanor assault. They will be arraigned in District Court later this month.
