A trial date has been set for radio show host Rover, whose real name is Shane French.

The shock jock is charged with inducing panic, assault, resisting arrest, vandalism, criminal damaging, a fireworks charge and more.

On Thursday, Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court Judge Brian Corrigan scheduled the trial to begin May 20.

Rover was arrested this past July at Whiskey Island. Cleveland Police say Rover was drunk and shot off fireworks at an officer and then pushed the officer.

Rover hosts Rover's Morning Glory weekday mornings.  He has said publicly that he plans to fight the charges and prove his innocence.
