Gary Hollister Ainsworth appeared in Yellowstone County Justice Court by video on Monday on one felony charge each of aggravated assault and theft and two felony assault with a weapon charges.

According to The Billings Gazette (http://tinyurl.com/lcb4gdd ), Judge Pedro Hernandez set Ainsworth’s bond at $20,000 and ordered him to appear in District Court for arraignment on Oct. 28.
