COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  A preliminary hearing for the man accused of shoving his wife into oncoming traffic has been rescheduled.

A judge moved the hearing to Thursday after witnesses entered the courtroom wearing flip-flops.

Twenty-two-year-old Joshua Valdez was charged with aggravated assault after allegedly pushing his wife into on-coming traffic Monday afternoon.

Witnesses say he shoved 22-year-old Amber Valdez near the intersection of Victory Drive and South Lumpkin Road. 

Amber Valdez suffered head trauma after she was struck by a car. Her condition has recently upgraded from critical condition to unsatisfactory condition at the Medical Center.
