Alleged attacker in court
A MAN accused of attacking Swan Mayor David Lucas is due to enter his plea in Midland Magistrates Court next month.
Warren Jeater appeared in court on Tuesday charged with assaulting a person performing a public function and unlawful damage, over an incident in which Cr Lucas was allegedly hit in the head with a microphone at a special electors meeting on June 18.
About 200 people were at the Midland Town Hall meeting to discuss the Midland Oval Redevelopment Plan.
The 67-year-old was represented by a duty lawyer who requested a four-week adjournment for Jeater to seek further legal advice.
Magistrate Kevin Tavener advised Jeater to enter a plea when he was due in the Midland court on August 7.
