Country musicians Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney are tentatively scheduled to stand trial on May 7 on misdemeanor charges stemming from a June 3 incident in the Buffalo, N.Y., area, when a ride Chesney took on a police horse led to a scuffle with Erie County sheriff's deputies. Besides the singers, McGraw's road manager, Mark Russo, was also charged. Orchard Park Town Judge Edmund Brown Jr., meanwhile, said that within the week he would rule on a request by the singers' lawyer to throw out the charges, says the Associated Press.
