Two motorcyclists who rode onto a closed bicycle race route Saturday afternoon, one of them injuring a police officer in the process, have been charged.
Denver District Attorney Beth McCann charged Steven Cicchi, 32, with eluding a peace officer, assault of a peace officer in the third degree, failing to report the accident or return to the scene, failure to have insurance and violating bail bond conditions.
Cicchi and three other motorcyclists interrupted the Colorado Classic this weekend at Speer Boulevard and Zuni Street, where Cicchi allegedly hit a police officer, who was on foot, before crashing his motorcycle. The officer was transported to the hospital on non-emergency status.
Cicchi was arrested soon after. When the incident occurred, he was out on bond for a separate case in which he had also been charged with eluding a peace officer. He is currently in custody in the Denver city jail, with bond set at $50,000. His court date is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Aug. 17 in Denver County.
