Man pleads not guilty to threatening Rapid City reporter

Posted: Updated:

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A man accused of threatening a Rapid City TV reporter with a knife has pleaded not guilty to aggravated assault.

Authorities allege that Damian New Holy, 36, was drunk when he pursued KOTA-TV reporter Katy Urban while she was preparing to record video during a Summer Nights festival concert in late August. She ran for help and was not injured.

New Holy faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted. New Holy is being held in the Pennington County Jail in lieu of $40,000 bond.

Judge Janine Kern has removed herself from the case because she has worked with Urban. A new judge will be assigned later.
