BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore City State’s Attorney Gregg Bernstein’s son has been charged with second-degree assault.
Baltimore police say the incident happened on Thursday morning in the 500-block of Scott Street in West Baltimore.
They found Owen Bernstein, 22, and Robert Hardie, 30, with serious cuts to their hands and fighting. They say the two men were roommates and that they consented to cutting each other and then shook hands. They were treated at Shock Trauma and released.
The case has been referred to the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office due to conflict of interest.
A court commissioner has issued a criminal summons which will be delivered to Owen Bernstein’s home on Thursday night.
Court documents reveal that the case will go to trial on Aug. 10.
