Missoula Weekly Crime Report: One Man Assaulted His Wheelchair-Bound Grandfather
The Missoula County Attorney’s Office filed 15 felony complaints this week. According to County Attorney Kirsten Pabst, some of those were new in custody cases and the rest were out of custody warrant requests.
“In one case, the defendant was charged with assault and criminal mischief,” Pabst said. “The allegation there is that the defendant assaulted his wheelchair bound grandfather. In another case, we charged indecent exposure. The allegation there is that, in September, the defendant allegedly exposed himself to two adult women at Kelly Island and also exposed himself in the presence of three minors.”
Pabst said her office also charged one defendant with vehicular homicide while under the influence.
“That involved a situation that occurred in February where the defendant was allegedly driving after consuming alcohol and collided with a cyclist,” Pabst said. “That cyclist has sadly since passed away from their injuries. In another assault with a weapon case, the defendant allegedly pointed a gun and threatened to shoot a person for speeding through a neighborhood. The defendant who threatened to speeder with a gun was charged with a felony.”
In addition, Pabst said they charged one theft case and three drug cases.
“One involved suspected meth,” Pabst said. “One involved heroin, meth, and fentanyl. The third involved heroin, meth, and stolen credit cards. Finally, we charged two fugitives from justice. In one, the defendant had several warrants out of North Dakota including the manufacture of drugs and DUI fourth offense. The other had a warrant for failing to register as a sex offender out of Georgia and Idaho.”
According to Pabst, they also charged a sexual intercourse without consent case involving a situation at a campsite on Reserve Street.
