Rep. Bob Filner faces assault and battery charges in connection with an
alleged run-in Sunday night with a United Airlines employee at Dulles
International Airport, according to an airport spokeswoman.
The San Diego Democrat, whose office had no immediate comment Monday afternoon, is scheduled to appear Oct. 2 in Loudon County General District Court.
