A Corvallis man faces two felony charges after police found a gun, silencer and drugs in his vehicle.
Christopher Lee Anderson, 35, was pulled over on Sept. 6 after failing to signal, according to the charging affidavit. He allegedly confessed to stabbing a tire of another vehicle the previous night and having a loaded and chambered gun behind the front passenger seat. He performed poorly on field sobriety tests and was observed as being impaired.
He is charged with possession of dangerous drugs and having a silencer, both felonies, and failing to signal, driving under the influence and possessing drug paraphernalia, all misdemeanors.
Anderson appeared before Justice of the Peace Jennifer Ray, who set his bond at $12,000.
A Hamilton homeless man was charged on Sept. 9 with possession of dangerous drugs, a felony, and criminal possession of drug paraphernalia, a misdemeanor.
Richard Leo Laporte, 43, was arrested on an outstanding City Court warrant. When directed to remove his large backpack he admitted to having methamphetamine in the backpack. A search and testing confirmed the baggie and glass pipe with white residue was methamphetamine.
Laporte appeared before Justice of the Peace Jennifer Ray, who set his bond at $5,000 with pretrial services, drug monitoring and a district court date of Sept. 29 or 30.
A Stevensville man was charged with partner or family member assault by strangulation, a felony, and criminal possession of dangerous drugs, also a felony.
Dean A. Leonard Flint, 34, was arrested on Sept. 10, the day after the alleged assault.
Flint’s girlfriend reported she was assaulted 11 times throughout the night, including strangulation, according to the charging affidavit. She said she was “cold-cocked” on the left side of her head, and pushed face down on a mattress with his arm against her throat. He also allegedly placed his hand over the victim’s nose and mouth with enough pressure that she felt she would be suffocated.
The victim left in the morning and was transported to St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula, where her injuries were photographed.
The Ravalli County Sheriff’s officer visited with Flint, advised him of his Miranda Rights, talked about the reported violence and arrested him.
Flint denied the attacks, but a Ravalli County Sheriff's deputy noted that scratches on his back looked like hands clawing him from underneath, the affidavit said. He admitted to smoking “clear” and a search resulted in a black cylinder that field-tested positive for methamphetamine.
Flint appeared before Justice of the Peace Jennifer Ray, who set his bond at $20,000 with a district court date of Sept. 29 or 30.
A Billings man was arrested in Ravalli County for criminal possession of dangerous drugs, a felony, and possessing drug paraphernalia and careless driving, both misdemeanors.
Shane Anthony Scott, 31, was arrested after a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of U.S. Highway 93 and Woodside Cutoff Road, where he was the driver of a freight-liner commercial box truck that had struck a passenger vehicle, according to the charging affidavit.
A Montana Highway Patrol trooper investigated the crash, interviewed Scott and during a consent search found a glass pipe with a white and blue substance and a container with a white substance that field-tested positive for methamphetamine.
Scott appeared before Justice of the Peace Jennifer Ray who set his bond at $5,000 with a district court date of Sept. 29 or 30.
