Ravnsborg is facing three misdemeanor charges in Hyde County, S.D. for hitting and killing 55-year-old Joseph Boever's with his car alongside the highway on Sept. 12. Ravnsborg claimed he thought he had hit a deer.

Joseph Boever's cousin Nick Nemec stated to The Daily Beast, “I am astonished. I would think they would at least want to put a hold on his name until he cleared himself or was convicted. This is just a slap in the face.” Nick Nemec attended West Point for 2 years and served 15 years in the Marine Corps.
