David Bowie--accused of sexually assaulting a Dallas-area woman last month--has agreed to take an AIDS test if it doesn't interrupt his world tour, his attorney said Thursday. The test was requested last month by a 30-year-old woman who said Bowie sexually assaulted her Oct. 9 in a Dallas hotel room and then told her he had just exposed her to the fatal disease. Texas State District Judge David Brooks had set a hearing for Thursday to decide whether Bowie should be ordered to take the test, but agreed to delay the hearing until Dec. 18 after a conference Wednesday with attorneys for the woman and Bowie. Bowie's attorney, James Linn, said his client does not object to taking the test in Australia, his latest stop on the tour, or elsewhere along the tour. The woman has filed a criminal complaint against Bowie and testified Wednesday before a Dallas County grand jury. The grand jury is expected to decide Nov. 18 whether to indict Bowie.
