MONTEVIDEO, Minn. — Tremaine Michael Bucholz, 20, of Minneapolis, made his first appearance Tuesday in Chippewa County District Court in Montevideo on felony charges that he accelerated his car and struck his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend on their bicycles while in Montevideo.

He is charged with felony assault in the second degree with a dangerous weapon, a felony charge of criminal damage to property, and a gross misdemeanor charge of failure to stop for collision, injury or death.
