New Video Surfaces in Sioux Falls Bicyclist-Motorist Spat
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A judge wants to review video evidence before deciding on a plea deal for a Sioux Falls man accused of swearing and honking his horn at a bicyclist and pushing him into traffic with his pickup.
The case surfaced after bicyclist Joe Stiller snapped a photo of driver Joshua Schroeder last April and posted it on Facebook.
The 39-year-old Schroeder has agreed to a plea deal in which reckless driving and simple assault charges will be dropped in exchange for him pleading guilty to following too closely. Defense attorney Jeff Larson says a gas station video shows that Stiller exaggerated what happened.
The 50-year-old Stiller says the incident terrified him and he thinks the initial charges are appropriate.
Judge John Schlimgen wants to review the gas station video.
