HAVRE, Mont. (AP) - A 46-year-old Havre man has denied charges that he fired a shot into the rear window of a passing car, narrowly missing the driver.

The Havre Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/16JZ9er ) Douglas Hopf pleaded not guilty Thursday to attempted deliberate homicide along with criminal endangerment and tampering with witnesses.

District Judge Dan Boucher agreed to a defense request to reduce Hopf’s bail from $100,000 to $30,000.

Hopf was charged on Dec. 10 with firing a shot at a car as it drove past his residence on Nov. 29.

Court records say Hopf told prosecutors he went out to a bar with the alleged victim’s girlfriend that evening and that they returned to his residence. The victim told investigators he was driving around trying to find his girlfriend when his window was shattered.
