Report: Mount Pleasant man charged with DUI after hitting bicyclists

A 44-year-old man has been charged with DUI after authorities say he hit two bicyclists with his truck in Mount Pleasant Monday afternoon.

Investigators charged Warren Eugene Chico of Mount Pleasant with driving under the influence.

Around 12:30 p.m. on Monday, the Mount Pleasant Police Department responded to the area of Rifle Range Road and Center Lakes Drive for a collision.

A police report states that two bicyclists were on Rifle Range Road when a truck driven by Chico rear ended one of the bicycles, knocking the 28-year-old female bicyclist into the grass.

Authorities say the truck then hit the other bicycle which caused the 33-year-old male bicyclist to flip off his bike and land on the ground.

Officers had closed both directions of Rifle Range Road as crews cleared the scene.
