KNOXVILLE — The criminal case against a University of Tennessee student whose encounter with a Knox County Sheriff’s Office deputy prompted an international media firestorm was postponed today.

Jarod Dotson, 21, of Powell, was arraigned in Knox County General Sessions Court on charges of public intoxication and resisting arrest, as were a handful of other UT students arrested during a large block party in Fort Sanders late last month.

Judge Andrew Jackson VI set a June 14 hearing for Dotson, who has hired attorney Tasha Blakney, and four other UT students Blakney’s firm represent.
