ATLANTA - An Atlanta official says a court hearing for former University of Georgia athletic director Damon Evans on a drunken driving charge has been postponed.

Atlanta Municipal Court administrator Doug Mincher said Thursday that the hearing for the 40-year-old Evans, which had been scheduled for Monday, has been postponed until Oct. 4 at the request of Evans' attorney, Steve Weiner.

Evans was arrested last week and charged with drunken driving and failure to maintain a lane. The arresting officer's report said Evans asked to be let off with a warning and had a pair of ladies' panties between his legs when his car was stopped on an Atlanta street with a 28-year-old woman as a passenger.

Evans resigned as athletic director in Sunday.

Postponing court hearings

Postponing court hearings and/or trials is a common tactic by any good attorney. With the high turnover of police officers, they keep postponing hearings until the arresting officer has left the department. Don't be surprised if this thing gets dragged out for a long, long time.

When Ben Harbin refused the breathalyzer and the blood test, the court took away his drivers license. We haven't heard whether Evans is still sporting around in his BMW.
