MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- 20-year-old Charley Gargano waived his right to a preliminary hearing on Monday, September 30th.

Gargano is the Marquette University lacrosse player accused of dropping acid and punching a female public safety officer. He is charged with substantial battery.

In court Monday, a Milwaukee County judge found there was probable cause in the case and bound Gargano over for trial.

Gargano's lawyer, John Schiro, told FOX6 News, "He comes from a wonderful family. He has never been in jail before."

Schiro says when it comes to Gargano's future with Marquette University, that's up in the air. They are waiting for the school to come to a decision on that -- both for academics and athletics.

Gargano will be back in court to enter a plea to the charge against him on October 8th.
