Who: Jesse Nesbitt, 34

What: The Occupy San Francisco activist is scheduled to appear for a preliminary hearing Wednesday on charges that he lobbed bricks from a rooftop onto protesters and cops May 1, injuring at least one other protester and damaging a police patrol car. The incident occurred during the May Day takeover of the 888 Turk St. building.

History: In November, when Occupy SF had an encampment at Justin Herman Plaza, police said Nesbitt threw a glass bottle at a city employee that just missed hitting the worker.

Latest: Nesbitt’s attorney last week requested that his client receive a mental health evaluation.
