Clallam County Superior Court Judge S. Brooke Taylor on Friday reset the trial because Deputy Prosecuting Attorney John Troberg has another trial scheduled for this week.
McDaniel, 27, is charged with third-degree assault of a law enforcement officer for allegedly shoving Deputy Mark Millet after McDaniel was awakened in his car at Railroad Bridge Park in Sequim shortly before midnight Feb. 3.
McDaniel was mistakenly released from jail shortly after his arrest and turned himself when he learned about the error.
He remained in the Clallam County jail on $10,000 bond Friday.
McDaniel maintained his innocence at his Feb. 15 arraignment and in a 10-page, single-spaced handwritten letter that was filed in Superior Court on March 17.
In the letter, McDaniel alleges that the deputy filed contradictory reports.
He has repeatedly requested to be released from jail on his own recognizance.
