Man pleads innocent to hitting joggers on purpose

Posted: Updated:

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - An Arkansas man pleaded not guilty to charges that he intentionally drove into a group of joggers in downtown Cape Girardeau last year.

Nineteen-year-old Vincent T. Anderson, of Little Rock, Ark., pleaded not guilty Monday to felony first-degree assault and vehicle tampering.

Anderson and Marcus E. Jones of Cotton Plant, Ark., were charged in October after a car they were in struck the joggers, who suffered bumps and bruises. Police say the car was stolen shortly before it drove across lanes and went directly at the joggers.

Jones was sentenced last month to 90 days in the county jail for misdemeanor vehicle tampering.

The Southeast Missourian reports (http://bit.ly/Wt2zFd ) Anderson faces more serious charges because police say he was the driver.
