SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
Court documents show alcohol may have played a role in a shooting at two Woodbury County cyclists.
Tony Pierce and John Pecaut tell Plymouth County deputies they were riding along Highway 12 on Sunday morning, a couple of miles north of Stone State Park, when an SUV pulled up, slowed down, and a man inside started shooting bullets above their heads. The two men say they took cover in a ditch and Pecaut called 911.
Authorities tracked down the vehicle and arrested the alleged shooter, Terry Lee Oliver Jr., 22, of Sioux City. Court paperwork says Oliver Jr. failed the Standard Field Sobriety Tests and a PBT (Preliminary Breath Test) indicated he was over the legal limit.
Oliver Jr. faces charges of Attempted Murder and Operating While Intoxicated. His passenger, 20-year-old Cesar Gonzalez is being held as a material witness.
Oliver Jr. and Gonzalez will be back in court Aug. 13th for preliminary hearings.
