COLLINGWOOD, ONT. - The drunk driving case against a member of the Toronto Raptors will return to court later this month to set a date for trial.
A judicial pre-trial held Monday morning for Raptors centre Jonas Valanciunas, who was charged in early April with having a blood-alcohol level over. 80. A pre-trial is held to determine if a resolution can be reached with the crown and to narrow down trial issues.
Police allege the 22-year-old Lithuanian drove a vehicle through a drive-thru restaurant in Wasaga Beach at around 2:30 a.m. that morning with open beer bottles in plain view.
Following a pre-trial hearing between the judge, crown, and Valanciunas' lawyer Melanie Webb, it was decided to return to court on June 24 to set a date.
In court, Webb indicated there was still some outstanding disclosure issues. She declined to comment to reporters outside the courtroom.
Valanciunas has yet to make an appearance, and has been represented by agents for his lawyer, Alan Gold.
