KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - A 27-year-old Kalispell man faces several felony charges after reportedly threatening an officer who arrested him after a drunken driving crash.
The Daily Inter Lake reports (https://bit.ly/1b7jL22 ) Michael Tyler Nelson was charged on April 21 with negligent vehicular assault, criminal endangerment and threats in official matters. He did not enter a plea and he remained jailed Monday with his bail set at $10,000.
Prosecutors say Nelson ran a red light on March 15 and his pickup truck collided with a sport utility vehicle, injuring a pregnant woman and her passenger.
Court records say Nelson’s blood-alcohol level was 0.328, more than four times the limit at which a person is considered legally intoxicated.
Nelson was taken to the hospital, where the officer said Nelson made threats against him and his family.
Nelson’s District Court arraignment has not been scheduled.
