Las Vegas cops are pushing hard for information surrounding the fatal hit-and-run that killed a cyclist … pleading for anyone with tips about the horrific incident to come forward.
The city’s police department asked for the public’s help at the end of August — a couple of weeks after retired police chief Andreas Probst was struck and killed while riding his bicycle.
The LVMPD said officers found and arrested the 17-year-old driver, and charged him related to the hit-and-run … but things changed once they discovered the video — adding open murder to his charges after determining the hit was intentional.
Cops haven’t said if the passenger, who filmed the brutal crash, has been arrested … but Las Vegas PD is asking for anyone with info to come forward and offer up what they know.
The department also hasn’t released information about the 17-year-old driver due to his age.
As we reported, the 2 teens were laughing in the disturbing video while plotting to hit Probst on a Las Vegas street last month … crashing into him and sending him flying up their windshield and onto the concrete behind them.
Probst was rushed to a hospital where he was later pronounced dead.
