RAPID CITY, S.D. — A Piedmont man accused of attempting to kill a Rapid City man has pleaded not guilty to felony charges.

The Rapid City Journal reports that 48-year-old Michael Wisecarver faces alternative charges of attempted first-degree murder and aggravated assault and one count of commission of a felony with a firearm. Wisecarver pleaded not guilty Monday in the case.

Authorities say Wisecarver drove to Chad Arnold’s house last month and started shooting at him. Authorities have said Arnold lay with a bullet lodged in his spine in his driveway overnight until a passer-by called authorities the following morning.

Police have said a preliminary evaluation found him paralyzed from the waist down.
