“We wouldn’t do anything until the court case is done,” he said.
The party’s central committee has about 200 members, Owens said. Music was elected to it in May.
Music, 33, was indicted on Dec. 6 and is scheduled to be arraigned Dec. 20, court records show.
According to the indictment, Music “did knowingly cause serious physical harm” to Hillabrand Nov. 4 after the Browns and Kansas City Chiefs game.
Hillabrand, 28, spent several days in the hospital after he was punched from behind and hit his head on the sidewalk, CBS affiliate WOIO-TV and the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported.
Hillabrand is a firefighter in Lake Twp. near Toledo and works for his family’s construction company. He was knocked unconscious and suffered a brain bleed, WOIO reported.

Cleveland police said Hillabrand was attacked after trying to stop Music from throwing construction cones in the street.
Music unsuccessfully ran for Miami Twp. trustee in 2017, his first bid for public office. He finished last in a field of five candidates for two open seats in November of that year, according to Montgomery County Board of Elections results.
During the campaign, Music cited “understaffing in our service departments and safety” among the “biggest issues” facing the township.
Responding to a Dayton Daily News question about the most important long-term issues facing Miami Twp., Music answered, in part, “I will invest in our neighborhoods, parks, roads and first responders. We must have safe places for our community members to live and play.”
