(KSL News) -- Totally Awesome Computers owner Dell Schanze was in court today. He faces charges of reckless driving and threatening with a dangerous weapon in a fight. His pretrial hearing was cancelled when Schanze's attorney requested a motion to quash. A judge rescheduled the hearing for later this month.
In court today, Schanze was calmer and more subdued than he usually appears. He still says he is innocent.
Dell Schanze, Defendant: "It ended very peacefully. I'm very happy that no one got hurt and basically no crime was committed. It's really sad that they would charge the victim with a crime instead of the three assailants wielding weapons, but you know, we'll go through it and peace be with all."
Police say Schanze pulled a gun on a group of neighbors when they confronted him for speeding down their street earlier this year. Witnesses say he was going at least 50 miles an hour in a residential neighborhood. Schanze says he was concerned for his safety, so he drew the 10 millimeter handgun.
