MANITOWOC, WI (WHBL) - A 20-year-old Manitowoc man is free on a signature bond on charges that he struck a bicyclist, lodged him through his broken windshield, and hit another vehicle. Jamie Hang made his initial court appearance Monday in Manitowoc on felony charges of reckless endangerment and hit-and-run while causing injury, plus misdemeanor counts of hit-and-run and driving while intoxicated. As part of the bond, Circuit Judge Gary Bendix ordered hang to maintain absolute sobriety, not drive without a valid license, and stay away from the man he allegedly struck. 56-year-old Steven Gove had just finished delivering newspapers in Manitowoc the night of January 18th. Authorities said his three-wheeled delivery bike was hit, and Gove was thrown through the car's windshield, where he stayed until Hang got home. The victim said he had glass removed from his eyes, and suffered cuts to his head and legs. A judge is scheduled to decide on February 19th whether there's enough evidence to put Hang on trial.
