Man charged with driving into bicyclists in Montevideo
MONTEVIDEO — Tremaine Michael Bucholz, 20, of Minneapolis, made his first appearance Tuesday in Chippewa County District Court in Montevideo on two felony charges of assault in the second degree with a dangerous weapon, a felony charge of criminal damage to property, and a gross misdemeanor charge of failure to stop for collision, injury or death.
The court ordered bail set at $100,000 without conditions for release and at $50,000 for release with conditions.
The Chippewa County complaint alleges that Bucholz accelerated his car and struck his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend when he spotted them riding bicycles at 6:08 p.m. Aug. 28 near Eastgate Apartments on the 1000 block of North 11th Street in Montevideo.
The woman suffered cuts and scrapes over her body, and reported that she had been knocked to the ground by the collision and that part of the car drove over her bicycle and part of her leg. The man also suffered unspecified injuries.
Both bicycles were destroyed, according to the complaint.
