Police charge second man with assault following bicycle crash

Police have charged a second man with assault after a bicycle crash that injured a pizza chain founder and a competitive cyclist. Eighteen-year-old Daniel Embury of Louisville was charged with two counts of second-degree assault and wanton endangerment. Another Louisville man, 18-year-old Kevin Marlett, was charged last week with second-degree assault and wanton endangerment. Papa John's chairman and CEO John Schnatter and competitive cyclist Curtis Tolson were injured in the June second crash after someone threw a textbook out the window of a passing vehicle. A third cyclist avoided the crash. Both Tolson and Schnatter were hospitalized after the incident, but have since been released. Police say Marlett was the driver. The criminal complaint against Embury says four others were in the vehicle. Three juveniles riding in the vehicle have also been charged with complicity. The complaint says the group had been playing pranks against motorists and pedestrians.
