A long-time Toronto Star columnist, facing an assault charge after an incident in Wollaston, has another court date scheduled in Bancroft.

The Bancroft OPP says 60-year-old Rosie DiManno was allegedly involved in a physical altercation with another person on Finnegan Lane in Coe Hill earlier this month.

DiManno did not appear in Bancroft court yesterday, although a lawyer was there to represent her.

She now has a court date scheduled for August 23rd.
