LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The man accused of assaulting Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer says he's not guilty.  That was the plea entered this morning for 18-year-old Kanissa'ai Thompson during a brief court hearing in Adair County.

Police say he injured Meyer seriously enough that Meyer required medical treatment, including staples to close a gash on his head.

Thompson denies the allegations, saying it was a woman who hit Meyer during a party last month.  He was assigned a public defender, and will be back in court later this month.
