A Dickinson County man arrested in Florida on an assault charge will be back in the U.P. as soon as authorities can go get him.
22-year-old Robert Irish of Kingsford is in the Broward County Jail in Fort Lauderdale.
Police arrested him in Deerfield Beach, Florida a week ago on an out-of-state warrant.
Irish had an extradition hearing in Fort Lauderdale this morning.
Court staff there say he’s decided to waive his extradition.
Irish is accused of a beating that happened on East B Street in Iron Mountain in September.
One of the victims, Mike Uren, recently spoke out at a City Council meeting about his frustration that no arrests had been made.
