Detroit Lions safety Amari Spievey's court date on charges of third degree assault and two others in Middletown, Conn., was pushed back to June 28, according to the Middletown News.

In the meantime, Spievey was granted a request to participate in a family violence education program in Michigan, which will presumably let him take part in the Lions' offseason training program that begins Monday. Upon successful completion of the program, the charges against Spievey will be dropped, though he cannot violate any other federal or state laws or the program will be voided.
