Breaking News: Road Rage Doc’s Trial Moves Forward

For those of you following the saga of Dr. Christopher Thompson, the driver in the July 4th Road Rage crash that left two cyclists in the hospital, his case is moving forward.  Thompson's case gained national attention because of the brutal images of the crash that were captured, and the appalling lack of concern showed by some residents of the canyon.

Dr. Thompson will be arraigned for more serious charges this January at the Airport Branch Courthouse after a judge in a preliminary hearing
today concluded there was a enough evidence to continue forward.  Currently, Thomspon is being charged with "felony assault with a deadly weapon."

I don't have more details at the moment, but as they come in we'll continue updating the story.
