Earlier today, Glenn Gritzner, through his attorney, pleaded "no contest" in the hit and run case where he struck the popular local cyclist known as Roadblock and fled the scene of the crash at 1:00 a.m. last May 19.  Gritzner's plea was to a class 1 misdemeanor for property damage and he also stipulated to the facts in the case.  He will not lose his license, he will most likely not do jail time. 

So what is his punnishment?  He will be booked within the next six months and he has to pay restitution to Roadblock.  In addition he can choose from one of three ways to pay off his sentence: a $510 fine which as anyone that has a traffic ticket knows will cost much more, in this case $2,000, 47 hours community service or a week in county jail.

In addition to Roadblock, Alex Thompson and Sara Bond of Bikeside were present at the hearing and Alex tweeted much of the news @AlexBCT. Bikeside also has full coverage of today's proceedings.  But this story isn't over yet.  A civil trial is still pending.
