A Columbus man accused of hitting a man with a car and severely disfiguring his face has had his Recorder’s Court hearing postponed indefinitely.
Tyrone Anton Brown, 28, faces a charge of aggravated battery. He appeared before Judge Mary Buckner Wednesday for his first appearance hearing, though detectives told the judge that the man allegedly hit by Brown remains in the hospital on a respirator.
The judge noted that Brown already had his first hearing on July 31 postponed before advising him of his rights and setting a $10,000 bond.
Police allege that Brown intentionally struck a man on July 22 with a 1988 Cadillac Brougham.
Officers heard on July 30 that Brown was at Cloister Apartments on Armour Road. When they went to arrest him, they found him hiding in a bedroom closet, reports state.
