       SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) _ A South Dakota trooper who was critically injured after an October police chase in Sioux Falls has left the hospital months earlier than expected.
       It's an early Christmas gift for the family of Trooper Andrew Steen, who left Sanford Hospital on Friday amid the cheers of more than a hundred supporters. He left the hospital wearing his Highway Patrol uniform and using crutches.
       Steen underwent two surgeries to remove part of his skull to relieve pressure on his brain, and then to replace it. He'd been hit by a car while trying to pull over 28-year-old Rachel Coleman for erratic driving. Coleman was shot at least three times by Steen and Lincoln County deputies before she was arrested. She is to stand trial in March.
