30-year-old Nicholas Paul Groschup, a resident of the Highway W area of the county, has been arraigned in Pulaski County Associate Circuit Court in Waynesville on the class E felony of leaving the scene of an accident. Court documents allege that on May 6th of last year, Groschup was involved in a traffic accident with another vehicle on I-44 near mile marker 157 and left the scene without stopping and giving his name, residential address, license number of the vehicle, or operator’s license number.
There were more than one thousand dollars in damages to the other vehicle. Groschup entered a not-guilty plea at the arraignment. Judge Colin Long scheduled the case for a February 28th counsel status hearing and a March 6th preliminary hearing.
