Authorities say West was carrying two loaded handguns, a loaded shotgun and an 8½-inch Bowie knife while riding a three-wheel motorcycle on the Capital Beltway in Maryland in September. Police say he was pulled over after cutting off an officer.
West had been scheduled to go on trial Feb. 18. He is charged with carrying a dangerous weapon, carrying a handgun, transporting a handgun, reckless driving and negligent driving.
The charges are all misdemeanors. Each weapons count carries a penalty of up to three years in prison.
Court officials changed the trial date on Thursday. Both sides agreed to the change.
