VANCOUVER, Wash. – Tea Party candidate David W. Hedrick, who came in third in the congressional primary in southwest Washington, is set for trial Jan. 28 in Vancouver.
He’s accused of striking his wife and charged with misdemeanor assault in connection with a fight at their home in Camas. Hedrick says he did not strike her but pushed her to the floor when she tried to hit him with a folding chair.
The 31-year-old management consultant has been free on bail since his arrest in October.
The Columbian reports he was in Clark County District Court Monday to have the trial date set.
