MANITOWOC, WI (WTAQ) - A 20-year-old Manitowoc man is free on a signature bond on charges that he struck a bicyclist, lodged him through his broken windshield, and hit another vehicle.

Jamie Hang made his initial court appearance Monday on felony charges of reckless endangerment and hit-and-run while causing injury -- plus misdemeanor counts of hit-and-run and driving while intoxicated.

As part of the bond, Circuit Judge Gary Bendix ordered Hang to maintain absolute sobriety, not drive without a valid license, and stay away from the man he allegedly struck.

56-year-old Steven Gove had just finished delivering newspapers in Manitowoc the night of January 18th. Authorities said his three-wheeled delivery bike was hit, and Gove was thrown through the car's windshield -- where he stayed until Hang got home.

The victim said he had glass removed from his eyes, and suffered head and leg cuts.

A judge is scheduled to decide a week from Wednesday whether there's enough evidence to put Hang on trial.
