Cops: Man throws 'Jesus' license plate at brother, cuts him

POINT MARION, Pa. (AP) - State police say a man has thrown a "Jesus" vanity license plate at his older brother during a fight in Pennsylvania, cutting him badly enough to require treatment by paramedics.

Forty-five-year-old James Wiles, of Springhill Township, is charged with simple assault and harassment over the argument with his 47-year-old brother on Feb. 24.

Police say Wiles' brother was cut by the plate's sharp edge.

A preliminary hearing on the charges is scheduled for March 31. A district judge in Fayette County will determine then whether Wiles will stand trial.

Wiles' public defender didn't immediately return a call Wednesday.
