Bond set for suspect in Sioux Falls trooper assault

Posted: Updated:

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A woman accused of hitting a South Dakota Highway Patrol trooper with her vehicle during a chase in Sioux Falls and critically injuring him has been released from a hospital and taken into custody.

A judge set bond for Rachel Coleman, 25, at $500,000 during a Thursday court hearing. Coleman was shot by officers in the Oct. 17 incident that put 34-year-old Trooper Andrew Steen in the hospital, where he underwent successful surgery to relieve pressure on his brain. Steen remains hospitalized.

Coleman was released from the hospital Wednesday. She faces several charges, including attempted murder and aggravated assault against an officer. She's being held at the Minnehaha County Jail.
