    Default Ben Wallace's brother not answering brawl charges

    Ben Wallace's brother not answering brawl charges


    Associated Press
    January 18, 2005

    ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. -- The brother of Detroit Pistons player Ben Wallace is the only defendant in the brawl at the Pistons-Pacers game who has not responded to the charges.

    David Wallace, 34, of Selma, Ala., is one of 12 people who were charged in the Nov. 19 ruckus that erupted after a fan tossed a drink at Indiana's Ron Artest. All the other defendants, including five Pacers, have filed appearances with the 52nd District Court in Rochester Hills in which they pleaded not guilty or stood mute.

    As of this afternoon, Wallace had not filed anything with the court.

    Wallace, who is charged with assault and battery, must show up with other defendants facing the same charge at a Jan. 25 pretrial hearing, Oakland County assistant prosecutor Paul Walton said. If he doesn't, the judge can issue a bench warrant, and Wallace will be entered into the state's police database, Walton said today.

    However, he would not be immediately arrested in Alabama since the law does not provide for extradition from another state for a misdemeanor.

    A message seeking comment was left for Wallace on Monday.

    Wallace is accused of punching Pacers player Fred Jones from behind during the brawl.

    Only one defendant in the brawl, Bryant Jackson, has been charged with a felony. His preliminary exam also is scheduled for Jan. 25.

    Pretrial hearings for two fans charged with violating a local ordinance prohibiting spectators from walking on the playing surface are scheduled for Jan. 24.

    Meanwhile, Auburn Hills police have received some leads on the identities of other fans involved in the brawl after photos were released earlier this month, Lt. James Manning said. He said more charges were expected.

    Could we blow this a little more out of proportion?

    He doesnt have to do anythign till his court date, which isnt till a week from now.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    They guy is just a guy, not a public figure. Why would he make a public statement? Doesn't make sense.

    I think the only thing getting blowing this out of proportion is the hack that sold this article as "news". Nothing else to write about that day?

    He's still consoling his daughter after she saw the back of Fred Jones' head visciously attack her daddy's fist.

    When I saw that little kid crying I about lost it. You gotta think of the kids, even if the kid they show is one of the attackers.
    Sorry, I didn't know advertising was illegal here. Someone call the cops!

    They told JO he needed to be at there, shouldn't we expect the same from him?
    Just because you're offended, doesn't mean you're right. ― Ricky Gervais.

    What if someone from a school of business or management school were to ask, How did you do this? How did you get the Pacers turned around? Is there a general approach you've taken that can be summarized?

    Larry Bird: Yeah, patience.

    Yeah but he doesn't have to show up till january 25th. If he doesnt show, oh well, his problem, not mine.

    As of right now though, he hasnt done anything wrong.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    I'm sorry - this article isn't about wether or not he'll show up, this article seems to just say that he hasn't made a statement or filed anything - BOTH OF WHICH HE DOESN'T EVEN HAVE TO before the hearing.

    The only news here is that there is no news.

    Crack journalism. Top notch.

    Exactly.

    If his last name weren't "Wallace," this would be no news.

    Hmm, the only guy that isnt going out and giving public statements is the brother of a famous athlete. Woooooow, thats unuaual....
