Missoula Weekly Crime Report: Man Killed His Dog With a BB Gun
The Missoula County Attorney’s Office filed 22 new felony complaints this week. County Attorney Kirsten Pabst said there were 11 crimes against persons.
“Seven of those involved interpersonal violence,” Pabst said. “In one, the defendant was charged with partner or family member assault third offense and burglary. He allegedly was trespassed from the victim’s home and then broke back into the home through a window. Evidently, he broke in through the son’s room, destroyed a TV and laptop, grabbed a knife, and then walked towards the victim while harming himself.”
Pabst said they charged four crimes against persons that did not involve family members.
“In one, the defendant allegedly assaulted the victim with a knife over a $45 deal that had gone wrong,” Pabst said. “In another, the defendant was charged with attempted deliberate homicide. That case involved a delivery of a package of methamphetamine at a UPS store. There was an undercover operation. The defendant allegedly threatened officers with a gun and pulled the trigger. Thankfully, it did not fire.”
In addition, Pabst said there was one case than involved cruelty to animals.
“In that case, the defendant allegedly shot his dog with a BB gun and the dog did not survive,” Pabst said. “In the endangerment category, there were four new cases. One of those involved carless driving resulting in death or serious bodily injury that occurred a few months back. In that case, the defendant was allegedly driving while looking at a GPS application on her phone and accidently hit and killed a motorcycle driver that was in front of her.”
According to Pabst there was on criminal endangerment case where the defendant was allegedly driving 100 miles per hour and crashed into a home. Finally, there was one theft case, one criminal mischief case, and four new felony drug cases.
