PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A Democratic National Convention delegate is now facing charged for an alleged assault that took place in Philadelphia during the convention in July.
The Philadelphia District Attorney’s office announced the arrest and charges of Walter Weeks. They say Weeks assaulted a fellow delegate during the Democratic National Convention which took place from July 25-28.
Officials say that they initially decided not to charge Weeks, because of an incomplete investigation.
The office says that they obtain additional video, after the decision, as well as more eyewitness testimony. The new materials led the office to reverse their decision and charge Weeks, of Garnet Valley, Pa., with the second degree misdemeanor of indecent assault.
Authorities say the incident took place at a hotel in Center City.
Weeks turned himself into police on Wednesday around 4:00 p.m.
