A trial date has been set for a Columbus man accused of pushing another man down a flight of stairs.

The Columbus Telegram reports 36-year-old Jason Fisher has been bound for trial in district court on July 23 on a first-degree assault charge. He waived his right to a preliminary hearing in the case.

Fisher is accused of pushing 57-year-old William Jorgensen down the stairs of a downtown apartment building at the end of May. Jorgensen suffered a crushed pelvis from the fall.

Jorgensen said he and Fisher had a disagreement inside an apartment unit where the tenant was not home. Jorgensen told authorities that Fisher shoved him as hard as he could down the stairs.

Fisher was later arrested and remains at the county jail.
