A court date for Cincinnati Bengals running back Quincy Wilson on a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge has been moved to August 14th.

A continuance for the Huntington Municipal Court hearing was granted today. Wilson has pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The Weirton resident played for the Mountaineers from 1999 through 2003. He was among 14 people arrested June 17th outside a Huntington bar. Huntington police Lieutenant Hank Dial said at the time that the group refused police orders to disperse.

Police were trying to break up the crowd out of safety concerns. Shots were fired about a half hour earlier one block from the bar.

None of those arrested were thought to be involved in the shooting. Other charges faced by members of the group include obstructing justice and underage consumption of alcohol.

Wilson played in three regular-season games with the Bengals last year, rushing two times for a total of two yards. He also had one special teams tackle.
