CLEVELAND - The arraignment of Gary Fury took place in Cuyahoga County Court at 8:30 a.m. He pleaded not guilty to aggravated vehicular assault and failure to stop after an accident, both felonies. Fury remains in jail and his $500,000 set earlier was continued.
On September 4, Fury, 54, of Berea, struck the 46-year-old male victim, an off-duty Pinckney, Michigan Police Officer, Robert Bielak with his vehicle.
Police investigated the hit-and-run accident which led to Fury's arrest on September 10.
Officer Robert Bielak was on a motorcycle and had pulled over to read a map on Interstate 71 at the Ridge Road overpass. The force of the collision partially severed the victim's leg. Fury fled the crash scene.
Bielak was transported to the hospital where his leg was amputated. He remains in MetroHealth Medical Center at this time following the surgery.
