GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — A Grand Forks man charged in a crash that cost another man part of a leg has been sentenced to 1 1/2 years in prison.
The Grand Forks Herald reports that 34-year-old Justin Teague pleaded guilty to felony terrorizing and misdemeanor charges of assault and preventing arrest. He was ordered to get chemical-dependency and psychological evaluations.
Teague was a passenger in a car that hit 37-year-old Michael Hart last October. Hart later had a leg amputated below the knee. Authorities say Teague struck Hart after the crash, fought with a person who stopped to help and threatened to kill a police officer.
The driver of the car that hit Hart has pleaded guilty to drunken driving and aggravated assault. Fifty-two-year-old Karen Vatnsdal is to be sentenced May 2.
