Robert Peterson, the man tased in the Kootenai County Courthouse in August, is heading to trial Friday, and said the video he shot without the court's approval will clear his name. Peterson is charged with three counts of battery and one count of contempt of court but is confident video from his camera of the tasing will prove that he's is innocent. He's been out on bail for a few weeks now and is confidant things will go his way. Back in August, Peterson walked into the Kootenai County Courthouse with his camera on. He was there to attend a hearing for riding a bike at night without a light. In Idaho however, you have to get permission from a judge before rolling. Peterson didn't have that/Anusha Roy, KXLY.

Question: And this all began with a man riding a bike at night without a light? Thoughts?
A bailiff at the Kootenai County courthouse lost his job recently after he was arrested on child sex abuse charges. Jack David McPike, 31, of Athol, is accused of sexually abusing a girl from 2006 until this month, when the girl told a school counselor about the abuse and the counselor contacted the Kootenai County Sheriff's Department. Detectives arrested McPike in the parking lot of the Kootenai County Courthouse May 17. McPike had been a bailiff there since August 2011. A Kootenai County human resources employee confirmed today McPike was no longer employed as of May 18. She said she couldn't say whether he was fired or quit/Meghann Cuniff, Sirens & Gavels.
