A trial date has finally been set in the Dallas Goedert bar fight case … months after the Philadelphia Eagles tight end was knocked out in an incident caught on video.
Goedert was socked in the face during a June 20 altercation at a South Dakota bar … after getting into it with another group.
The man who was arrested and charged for punching Goedert, 30-year-old Kyle Hadala, got hit with a simple assault charge … and faces jail time if convicted.
Goedert — who was hospitalized for injuries sustained during the incident — was neither arrested nor charged with a crime.
In fact, he healed up in time for the NFL season … only to suffer a broken ankle in Week 3 and hit injured reserve. Tough year.
So here’s what’s next … a pre-trial hearing for Hadala is set for Nov. 2 — where prosecutors will likely try to hammer out a plea deal.
If no deal is made, a trial date has been set for Nov. 18.
As we previously reported, Hadala says he was protecting his friends — and plans to fight the charge.
Stay tuned …
