Former governor Janklow cited for traffic accident
Former South Dakota governor Bill Janklow (R), who was convicted of second-degree manslaughter in 2003, was cited for a minor traffic accident in Sioux Falls on Tuesday.

Janklow hit a parked car and left the scene of the accident, according to the police report. When called back to the scene, he said he didn't realize he hit another vehicle but witnesses indicated otherwise.

"I see him walk over to the back of the car, kind of survey the damage, and then he gets back into his truck and moves it a couple aisles away," one witness told The Sioux Falls Argus Leader.

Janklow was forced to resign his seat in the U.S. House for his manslaughter conviction. As governor, he frequently clashed with tribes on sovereignty, jurisdiction and sacred sites.
