WAHPETON, N.D. — A Wisconsin man who faces a reckless endangerment charge after being rescued from a flooded North Dakota road is to stand trial this summer.
The Daily News reports that 22-year-old Joseph Reinke of Janesville, Wis., has pleaded not guilty to reckless endangerment and driving without liability insurance and is scheduled for a two-day trial beginning July 27.
Authorities say the student at the State College of Science and two passengers had to be rescued on April 5 after their pickup truck was swept away by floodwaters in Richland County and partially submerged.
Reinke could face more than a year in jail and $3,000 in fines if convicted.
