The DA has filed felony hit and run and misdemeanor DWI charges against a well known vintner accused of killing a bicyclist.

Bakersfield Police say John Guimarra III should have faced stronger charges for running over 32-year-old Angela Holder on Golden State Avenue and F Street last January, but D.A. Lisa Green thinks the facts in the case fit the charges.

Giumarra has denied any wrongdoing but could get four years in prison if convicted.
