COLUMBIA — The man who police said drove his car into Columbia's First Presbyterian Church in February was granted a continuance at his preliminary hearing Wednesday afternoon. 

Judge Deborah Daniels rescheduled the hearing for 2 p.m. June 22. 

Scott Andrew Robinson, 21, is charged with first-degree assault of a police officer, resisting arrest and first-degree property damage. 

Robinson was arrested after backing his vehicle into a police car and then driving through the front of the church building at Cherry and Hitt streets.
