PITTSBURGH (AP) - A man charged with assaulting the wife of Pittsburgh Pirates catcher Chris Snyder during a road rage incident has been ordered to stand trial.

A Pittsburgh judge Wednesday ordered 44-year-old Subhash Modhwadia to be tried on charges including aggravated assault and criminal mischief for the June 15 altercation with Carla Snyder.

Investigators say Modhwadia was riding a scooter when he nearly collided with the sport-utility vehicle being driven by Carla Snyder. Modhwadia allegedly followed her into a parking lot and kicked the vehicle then swung at the woman.

Authorities say an off-duty police officer and a passer-by subdued Modhwadia until police arrived.

Pittsburgh police say Chris Snyder was in the passenger seat unable to help his wife because of recent back surgery.

Modhwadia is being held on $25,000 bail.
