No ruling Friday on a request by a former Davenport alderman to get his assault charges dismissed. 71-year-old Keith Meyer was charged with assault while displaying a weapon after police say he threatened a neighbor with a gun.

In the hearing the judge advised Meyer multiple times to seek the help of attorney. He responded that he's had troubles in the past with legal council and wants continue representing himself. Meyer said in the Friday hearing that the accusations of assault simply aren't true.

He alleges there are defects in the police indictment and accused officers of conducted an illegal search of his home. Meyer also requested a chance to review documents subpoenaed from several city officials and the police department. Those subpoenaed were asked to leave the hearing as no testimony was given.

Assault while displaying a weapon is an aggravated misdemeanor. The judge said she would review and issue a written ruling at a later time. There is a pre-trial conference set for Wednesday the 9th.

Meyer was a Davenport alderman for several terms before losing in 2007.
