Man Pleads Not Guilty in Shooting Incident
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — A 22-year-old Sioux City man suspected of shooting at two bicyclists in northwest Iowa has pleaded not guilty to drunken driving and other charges.
Authorities say Terry Oliver Jr. on Monday entered a written plea of not guilty to OWI, going armed with intent and two counts of misdemeanor assault with a firearm. A trial date hasn't been set.
The bicyclists reported that they were riding along Iowa Highway 12 near Stone State Park when the incident occurred Aug. 5. They say a vehicle slowed as it neared them and someone inside it started shooting. They took cover in a ditch.
A suspect vehicle was stopped four miles north, and Oliver and Cesar Gonzalez were taken into custody after a brief foot chase.
Authorities say Gonzalez is a material witness.
