Rackers trial set for June 10

        COVINGTON — The assault trial of Bengals kicker Neil Rackers has been set for June 10. Rackers, 25, is charged with fourth-degree assault stemming from a Dec. 9 fight in a Covington nightclub.

        Kenton District Judge Douglas Grothaus on Wednesday set the jury trial for June 10 and a pretrial conference for 1:30 p.m. May 21.

        Rackers is accused of pushing a Colerain Township man, Brian Stoehr, into a restroom wall. The incident occurred after the Bengals had lost 14-10 to the Jacksonville Jaguars at Paul Brown Stadium.

        Rackers claimed that Mr. Stoehr repeatedly taunted him, his wife and his mother while they were dining at Willie's Sports Cafe.

        Stoehr alleges that Rackers attacked him.

        Judge Grothaus also sent the case to mediation.
