The trial of Trayvon Reed, who was dismissed from the Maryland basketball team after being charged in late July with theft under $100 and second-degree assault, has been postponed until Dec. 19, his attorney, David Putzi, said. Reed was scheduled to go on trial Friday in District Court in Hyattsville. Reed, a 7-foot-1 freshman center from Snellville, Ga., was arrested outside a 7-Eleven in College Park on July 30 when he got into an altercation with an undercover police officer who said he saw Reed take three items worth less than $6 and leave the store without paying.
