SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A Sioux City lawyer has pleaded not guilty to a hit-and-run charge.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1XfNcoY ) that 31-year-old Thomas Farrens entered a written plea Tuesday in Woodbury County District Court. Court documents say Farrens didn’t stop after his car struck two pedestrians and sideswiped another vehicle on April 4. His car was found abandoned in Grandview Park.

The pedestrians were taken to a hospital for treatment.

Police Sgt. Jeremy McClure says that after Farrens was found at home later that evening, his blood tested out above the legal limit for alcohol. Prosecutors say the use of alcohol is still being investigated.
