A Brazos County trial is declared a mistrial just about two hours after it began.

Judge Travis Bryan III declared a mistrial in the case of Quincy Butler.

Butler is accused of deadly conduct with a firearm stemming from an incident back in May 2011.

Judge Bryan said testimony from a witness about Butler's past would have prevented the jury from judging Butler solely on the crime in question.

A new trial date has been set for October 8th.
