Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Prosecutors are asking for more time to look at the case involving South Carolina State NAACP Director Lonnie Randolph.

Randolph and his attorney, Joe McCulloch, were in court Friday for a hearing in municipal court.

Back on July 12th, Columbia police charged Randolph with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after an incident at a cleaners in Five Points.

McCulloch maintains his client has Type One diabetes, which explains his behavior during the incident. Thursday afternoon, surveillance videos of the encounter were released to the public for the first time. Previous Coverage: Video Released of Randolph, Police Incident

During the hearing, prosecutors said they needed more time to talk to witnesses and people listed in several affidavits. They have not decided if they will or will not go forward with the charges but say if they do go to court, they want a jury trial.

Randolph's attorney tells News19 he is disappointed by the outcome.
