Man charged with robbing bank waives hearing


LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) _ A 69-year-old Clarkston, Wash., man
charged with robbing a Lewiston bank on Feb. 3 has waived his right
to a preliminary hearing and was bound over to 2nd District Court
for arraignment.
David Payton walked with the aid of a cane during Wednesday's hearing due to injuries suffered when he was shot by law enforcement officers shortly after the robbery. Payton, who spent about a month in the
hospital, is charged with robbery and four counts of aggravated
assault for allegedly pointing a gun at officers.
Payton's arraignment is set for Aug. 17. Nez Perce County
Prosecutor Dan Spickler says he has a tentative plea agreement, but
declined to elaborate.
The $3,000 taken from the bank has not been recovered.
