Plea Expected in Case of Man who Allegedly Brought Brass Knuckles to Rumble

Posted by wlpo on December 13, 2016

The man accused of bringing brass knuckles to a brawl in Peru earlier this year may have reached an agreement with prosecutors.

Floyd Campbell was back in an Ottawa courtroom Friday. The 21-year old is accused of bringing brass knuckles to a fight, which took place at 28th Street Park back in June.

Lawyers asked that the trial, which was set to begin Monday, be pushed back. The reason being they wanted to set a date for a possible guilty plea.  Campbell has been charged with unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon, and mob action.

Another man, Mitchell Hampton, was arrested after allegedly firing a gun during that same brawl. Hampton pled guilty in November to reckless discharge of a firearm and an unrelated charge. He was sentenced to 2.5 years in prison.

Campbell, meanwhile, remains in custody, unable to come up with the $10,000 needed to be released. His next court date was set for January 6th.
