An East Liberty man facing charges that he made a rap video threatening police had his case postponed this morning.

Jamal Knox, 19 told Allegheny County Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey A. Manning that he wanted to have a nonjury trial before the judge, but that his defense attorney, Kenneth Haber, recommended against it.

After several minutes of back and forth with the judge, Mr. Haber was removed from the case, and Judge Manning appointed defense attorney Kevin Abramovitz, who represents Mr. Knox on other charges, to handle the matter.

Rashee Beasley, who is also charged in the YouTube video case, consented to the postponement, and the case is now scheduled for Nov. 12.
