Minnesota man pleads not guilty to vehicular battery charge

DEADWOOD, S.D. — A Minnesota man who, allegedly driving under the influence, caused serious injury to his brother in an ATV accident over the summer pleaded not guilty to the charges against him last week before 4th Circuit Court Judge Michelle Comer at the Lawrence County Courthouse.

Nicholas Graydon Newman, 25, of Wilmont, Minn., was indicted by a Lawrence County grand jury July 6 and charged with vehicular battery against a male victim, a Class 4 felony, punishable by up to 10 years in prison and $20,000 in fines.

Prosecutors allege Newman was under the influence of either drugs or alcohol when he wrecked a ATV causing serious bodily injury to a passenger.

The accident happened on Brownsville Road near Yellow Creek Road.

Newman is due back in court Nov. 17.
