The father and son who allegedly beat-up KFBK sports personality Pat Walsh are scheduled for their next date in court. The Placer County District Attorney’s Office is charging John Patrick O’Neill, 53, and Cory Taylor O’Neill, of Newcastle, with one misdemeanor battery count each for a June 1 road rage incident near the Applegate exit on Interstate 80. The charges were filed in August. The O’Neills are scheduled for an early status conference at 8:30 a.m. Jan. 13 in Roseville’s Department 32 courtroom. The two men allegedly pulled alongside Walsh on the freeway in June and started yelling and making gestures. A fight broke out when the two vehicles pulled to a stop near the exit, according to the California Highway Patrol. Walsh reportedly suffered a cut to his forehead, a swollen jaw and bruised kidneys during the incident. ~Bridget Jones
