SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Sioux Falls man who drove drunk and struck three boys riding bicycles has been sentenced to 180 days in jail.
Local media outlets report that 30-year-old Mark Davis was sentenced Monday to half a year in jail for driving under the influence and eight years of suspended prison time for vehicular battery. He also was ordered to pay $14,000 in restitution.
