      Psychiatric exam ordered for man accused of assaulting a woman with a stick

      A judge has ordered a psychiatric exam of a man being charged with assault.

      The judge ordered that 42-year-old Steven Barry should be examined for competency to stand trial. Barry was in court on Thursday, stating that Michigan State Police troopers tackled him to the ground and threatened to deport him to Serbia.

      Barry added that the woman that he allegedly assaulted with a stick had threatened him with a handgun and had been calling him a child molester since he was 14 years old.

      According to officials, the woman had never seen Barry before and was vacationing with her family at a rental property.
