Trial delayed for man accused of shooting at car in Ypsilanti Township in March
The court case for a man accused of shooting at another man’s car after an argument at an Ypsilanti Township convenience store will have his trial delayed after more evidence was released to the defense.
Mark Hubbard is charged with conspiracy to commit assault with a dangerous weapon, two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon and carrying a concealed weapon. His trial was scheduled to begin Monday morning in front of Washtenaw County Trial Court Judge David Swartz.
However, Washtenaw County Assistant Prosecutor Brenda Taylor said Hubbard’s attorney Michael Vincent had more lab reports released to him on Friday. There was not enough time to go over the reports and ensure the related witnesses would be ready for the trial Monday morning, so the case will be delayed.
The case was brought forward for a pretrial hearing Thursday. Swartz will hold another hearing on the case on Dec. 1. Neither Hubbard nor Vincent were in court Thursday.
Hubbard allegedly got into an argument with a man at the Dairy Mart on Textile Road on March 16 and followed the man as he drove away from the store. Police said Hubbard fired several shots at the car while they were driving on McCartney Avenue, before firing again at the man on Tyler Road. The man’s car was not hit, and no one was injured, according to police.
Hubbard is not currently in custody.
