Mississippi State University student Sawyer Thomas Steede’s aggravated DUI charge has been reduced to a misdemeanor.
Police arrested 19-year-old Steede, of Lucedale, in September on suspicion of aggravated driving under the influence after the pickup truck he was driving skidded over a curb at the McDonald’s on Highway 12 in Starkville and into the parking lot around Strange Brew. During the incident, 19-year-old and Mississippi State University freshman Kaleb Barker, also of Lucedale, was thrown from the truck bed and run over as the truck slid into the Strange Brew lot. Hallie Reasons, an 18-year-old freshman of Dyersburg, Tenn., was also injured in the incident.
