Arranged beating case set for trial

Arranged beating case set for trial


An 18-year-old Bismarck man who police say is one of five who arranged a meeting with a man and then assaulted him with a bat will go to trial in February.

Jeremy Vadner is charged with conspiracy to commit aggravated assault, court records show. He waived his right to a preliminary hearing on Monday, and South Central District Judge Gail Hagerty set a trial date of Feb. 12, 2020.

Vadner is accused of using a phone belonging to a minor to contact the man and arrange an Aug. 21 meeting in the Legacy High School parking lot. Vadner and two minors allegedly assaulted the victim with a baseball bat and by punching and kicking him, police say. Another minor waited in a car while a fifth kept another person from participating in the fight. The victim received medical attention for his injuries, the affidavit says.

Calls placed to Vadner’s attorney, Matt Arthurs, for comment were not immediately returned.
