Court documents released Friday show a witness told police that Holder and another cyclist took off across the street and narrowly missed hitting them before Giumarra III hit Holder.

The documents say Giumarra III told police he was playing with his radio and did not know that he hit a person. The document says Giumarra III made a phone call a minute before a call was placed to 911 regarding the incident.

It is unclear if Giumarra III was on the phone at the time of the incident.
