Assault Suspect Waives Extradition from Florida

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.
