Another brief court appearance for a 34 year old Saint John police officer who's facing charges of assault, assault causing bodily harm and uttering threats.
Chris Messer was not there but his lawyer Brian Munro was.
The court set November 22nd for the start of a preliminary hearing to see if there is enough evidence to proceed to trial.
Munro says there will be two preliminary hearings because two different people have made allegations that have resulted in the criminal charges being laid.
Those charges were laid after an investigation was carried out by Miramichi Police. Messer's home was also targeted in a drive by shooting.
