OAKLAND COUNTY (WXYZ) — The couple seen in a viral video where a gun was pulled on a family outside of a Chipotle restaurant in Orion Township have waived their right to a preliminary hearing. They're now bound over for trial in Oakland Circuit Court.

Eric and Jillian Wuestenberg have been charged with felonious assault in the incident that happened on July 1.

The video shows the subsequent confrontation that occurred between the Hill family and the Wuestenbergs, where Jillian said the Hill family blocked her from her car until her husband Eric stepped in.

The couple claimed they were blocked, trapped and in fear.
