    Picabo Street to argue self-defense in domestic violence case

    SALT LAKE CITY — A lawyer for Olympic gold-medalist skier Picabo Street said Thursday that she was defending herself during a December fight with her father and will demand a jury trial on domestic violence and assault charges.

    Attorney Joe Wrona said that the ex-Olympian called 911 for help after her father attacked her, and she doesn't plan to strike a plea deal with prosecutors.
