PHILADELPHIA -

Nineteen-year police veteran Lt. John Josey will have to wait to learn his fate after appearing in court on a simple assault Tuesday.

Josey was captured on video striking a woman during the city's Puerto Rican Day Parade last September.

The woman, 39-year-old Aida Guzman, was seen getting knocked to the ground in the video.

After an investigation, Josey was later fired.
