Tyler Man Accused Of Beating Up A Man Is Arraigned On Extortion Charges

A Tyler man accused of beating up a man to get money from him appeared in federal court this morning.

22-year-old Robert Adkison pleaded not guilty to charges of extortion. Police say during Adkison's attack on the man at the Woodland's Apartments in Tyler, Adkison also held two other men against their will.

If convicted, Adkison faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 dollar fine. Another man involved in the incident, Andrew Charles, has a warrant out for his arrest.
