Actor Emile Hirsch is scheduled to make another court appearance in Park City, Utah, on allegations that he put a studio executive in a chokehold while he was in town for the Sundance Film Festival.

The "Into the Wild" star was charged earlier this year with aggravated assault, which is punishable by up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine. He also faces a misdemeanor count of intoxication.

Attorneys are expected to discuss upcoming dates in the case at Monday's hearing.

Hirsch's attorneys have said the actor from Encino, California, doesn't remember the events of Jan. 25 at Park City's Tao Nightclub because he drank so much alcohol. They say Hirsch went to rehab and received counseling.
