A prosecutor says the Rapid City man shot by a South Dakota Highway Patrol trooper was trying to run over officers with a stolen patrol car at the time.
A large bandage covered the right side of 27-year-old William Chandler's neck when he made his first court appearance Wednesday.
A magistrate set bond at $250,000.
Troopers were chasing Chandler and 23-year-old Joseph Paul Andrews Monday afternoon on Interstate 90 when their tires were flattened from spikes on the road.
Pennington County Deputy State's Attorney Kinsley Groote says Chandler managed to get behind the wheel of the patrol car and take off.
