Two Arkansas men facing charges after police say the stolen car they were in intentionally drove into a group of joggers, injuring three of them will be back in court in December.  The incident happened October 28th at the intersection of William and Main Street in Cape.  The victims suffered bumps and bruises.  19-year-old Vincent Anderson of Little Rock, and 27-year-old Marcus Jones of Cotton Plant, Arkansas were arrested an hour later on North Henderson Street.  Anderson was driving a Ford Thunderbird that was reported stolen moments before the joggers were struck.  All three were treated at the scene but one was taken to the hospital.  Anderson received a public defender Monday and has a preliminary hearing December 11th.  Jones pled guilty to tampering and not guilty to resisting arrest.  Judge Gary Kamp heard his bench trial Wednesday in Jackson.  He did not rule.  A sentencing hearing is set for December 17th.
