Mitchell man pleads guilty to hit-and-run, property damage

A Mitchell man pleaded guilty Tuesday to intentional property damage and to his role in a hit-and-run injury accident.

Max Mohr, 21, attempted to get into his ex-girlfriend's home by breaking a window and a door frame March 3. Neighbor Kyle Bussmus attempted to prevent Mohr from leaving by parking behind Mohr's truck. Bussmus jumped on Mohr's hood, Mohr said in court.

Mohr turned his truck around and Bussmus slid off the hood. According to court documents, Bussmus suffered injuries to both knees, his right thigh and shoulder.

Mohr pleaded guilty to intentional property damage for breaking the window and door, and pleaded guilty to hit-and-run for not calling authorities after Bussmus was injured.

Per the plea agreement, all other charges will be dismissed, Mohr will pay restitution for property damage and any uncovered injury costs not covered by Bussmus' insurance. The state will also recommend a suspended execution of sentence.

Judge Tim Bjorkman ordered a presentence investigation and scheduled sentencing for September.
