Knight incident in the courts

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rica (AP) -
American basketball coach Bobby
Knight's courtside shoving match with
a San Juan policeman heads for a court
of law after Knight and the officer
began legal proceedings against each
other yesterday.
Knight presented formal accusations
yesterday against the policeman who
arrested him Sunday. Knight's
deposition, accusing policeman Jose De
Silva of assault and battery among
other things, was taken by the Puerto
Rican Department of Justice.
DE SILVA, acting as an individual
and not a member of the police depar-
tment, also accused Knight of assault
and battery.
Under the Puerto Rican legal system,
the accusations are not formal charges
but are the first step in a process
toward charges. The sworn statements
now go before a judge who will decide if
there is probably cause for the charges.
The case is to go before the judge Wed-
If there is probable cause, the case
will be moved up a step to a district
judge who will decide on possible court
The accusations were criminal in
the United States Olympic Committee,
said at a morning press conference that
the accusations by Knight include
violation of his civil rights, humiliation
before his team and being incarcerated
without charges.
Knight, also at the press conference,
said he was held in a cell for 10 to 12
minutes Sunday and was in the police
station about a half hour before U.S.
Olympic Committee President Robert
J. Kane arrived and Knight was

Sullivan said sworn statements will
be made before the district attorney
Tuesday afternoon. They will go to a
judge for determination of probable
cause for a court hearing. He said it
probably will be 30 to 60 days before any
hearings would be held.
