Lower Brule Man Charged With Assault With A Dangerous Weapon

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Lower Brule, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury.
Colin Colombe, age 39, was indicted on August 21, 2013, for Assault with a Dangerous Weapon.  Colombe appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on September 4, 2013, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.       

The maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years of imprisonment and/or a $250,000 fine, 3 years of supervised release, an additional 2 years of supervised release upon revocation, and a mandatory $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered. 
The charge is merely an accusation, and Colombe is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 
The Indictment alleges that on June 25, 2013, Colombe assaulted two individuals by hitting and kicking them with shod feet with intent to do bodily harm.
The investigation is being conducted by the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges is prosecuting the case. 
Colombe was released on bond pending trial which has not been set.
