“Football player Kenton Keith will stand trial for assault in connection with an incident at a Regina nightclub last year, a judge has decided.
The 26-year-old American citizen is accused of injuring a man during a late-night brawl at Soho’s nightclub.
Keith, a running back who was first signed by the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2001, is currently attending training camp for the Indianapolis Colts of the National Football League. A preliminary hearing was held in Regina on Wednesday to determine if the Crown’s case was strong enough to proceed to trial. Keith had received permission from the court to be absent from the proceedings.
Five Crown witnesses testified about events at the nightclub. Their evidence cannot be reported because of a publication ban.
After hearing their testimony, provincial court Judge Clifford Toth ruled there was enough evidence for the case to proceed to trial.
Keith had received permission from the court to be absent from the proceedings.
No date has been set, but the trial could be scheduled for the fall or winter.”
