Man Assaults Brother with ‘Jesus' License Plate: Police

State police say one brother used a "Jesus" vanity license plate to assault another when they fought in southwestern Pennsylvania.

Forty-five-year-old James Wiles, of Springhill Township, is charged with simple assault and harassment for allegedly throwing the plate at his 47-year-old brother during an argument Feb. 24.

Police say Wiles' brother was cut badly enough by the plate's sharp edge that he required treatment by paramedics.

Wiles was supposed to face a preliminary hearing on the charges Tuesday, but that was postponed until March 31.
