Philadelphia Man's Bail Upheld On OZZFEST Assault Charges

Courier Post Online reports that bail was held at $40,000 Thursday for a Philadelphia man facing aggravated assault charges as the result of a fight in the parking lot of the Tweeter Center in Camden, New Jersey at the Aug. 4 Ozzfest there.

Assistant Camden County Prosecutor Kelly Testa opposed any reduction in bail for Jonathan Rodriguez, 24, at a hearing before Superior Court Judge John T. McNeill III. Rodriguez is being held in the Camden County Jail.

Testa said Rodriguez was identified by a man who, she said, was punched and kicked into unconsciousness but later was able to identify his assailant. The victim, she said, needed surgery to repair a tear to his intestine as well as eight to 10 stitches to close a cut on his forehead.

The victim was hospitalized at Cooper University Hospital for five days after the incident, she said.

The charges against Rodriguez are to be reviewed by a Camden County grand jury Sept. 21.
