The trial of Corey R. Krug, the Buffalo police officer caught on videotape striking a man with his nightstick, is being put off until October.
Krug, who was scheduled to go on trial early next month, asked for a delay because of conflicts in his attorney's schedule.
U.S. District Judge Richard J. Arcara rescheduled the trial for Oct. 23.
The trial will center around allegations of police brutality and a WKBW-TV video that caught Krug slamming a man onto the hood of a car and hitting him with a nightstick during an incident on Chippewa Street on Thanksgiving Day, 2014.
Investigated by the FBI and indicted by a federal grand jury, Krug is charged with deprivation of rights under color of law. He pleaded not guilty.
