Update: Sooner fan will face February trial in Longhorn case



Remember the University of Oklahoma fan accused of tearing the scrotum of a man wearing a Texas Longhorns shirt in an Oklahoma City bar? How could you forget?


Well, United Press International reported that Allen Michael Beckett is scheduled to appear at a preliminary hearing on assault charges on Feb. 6, ensuring that this story will continue well into the new year.


Following the June 17, 2007, incident, police charged Beckett with aggravated assault and battery after he allegedly grasped the other man's crotch, according to court documents. The victim required more than 60 stitches.


Beckett reportedly claimed he acted in self-defense.
