MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Mequon man is due in court next week on charges that he struck and injured a bicycle police officer with his van last week.

Forty-seven-year-old Vladimir Krivoshein is charged with hit-and-run injury and second-offense drunken driving causing injury. A preliminary hearing is set for Thursday.

Prosecutors say the officer was conducting a field interview Sept. 15 when Krivoshein sped by. The criminal complaint says the side mirror struck the officer in the chest and sent him sprawling.

Officers who arrested Krivoshein a few minutes later say he performed poorly on sobriety tests.

The complaint quotes Krivoshein as acknowledging that he took several swigs of vodka within the previous few hours. A Milwaukee Journal Sentinel report says he has two prior convictions for intoxicated driving.

    Hmmm who will get a longer sentence… Him or Amy Senser?

      I like your thinking on this one. It’s pretty convenient that the Senser story has been missing from the news lately. Just sweep it under the rug.
