Columbia, SC (WLTX) - The trial for South Carolina NAACP President Dr. Lonnie Randolph is set for December.

Randolph's attorney, Joe McCulloch, and lawyers for the city were in a hearing Friday morning.

Columbia police charged Randolph last July with trespassing, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct after an incident at a cleaner's in Five Points. Randolph says during the incident, he had a diabetic episode and that officers used excessive force when he wasn't responsive.

During Friday's hearing, McCulloch asked the city for more information about the officers involved in the incident. Specifically, he wants to know if they had any training on dealing with diabetics.

The judge said city attorneys will have to turn that employee history over along with a use of force report. That report is supposed to be generated any time police officers use force on an individual at a scene.

Both sides are still exchanging discovery information. The case will begin on December 9th.
