PITTSBURGH, Pa. -- A city paramedic will stand trial on charges that he tried to keep a fire lieutenant from entering a Lawrenceville bar where he had been called to help a man who had been assaulted.

After a morning preliminary hearing, a judge ordered Andrew Lagomarsino, 32, of Greenfield, to trial on charges of obstructing emergency services and harassment in a Sept. 17 incident at New Amsterdam, a Butler Street bar. Fire Lt. Darren McNeil was called there about 2:30 a.m. to aid a man inside. A count of simple assault was stricken.
