POLSON, Mont. (AP) - A 39-year-old St. Ignatius man who was on probation for trying to hit a Lake County sheriff’s deputy with his car has denied a charge that he fired a shot at an off-duty tribal police officer last month.

KERR-AM reports James Wilson Allen pleaded not guilty Wednesday to assault with a weapon.

At the time of the Jan. 20 shooting, Allen was wanted for violating his probation on a 2013 criminal endangerment conviction for trying to run into a deputy.

The latest charge alleges he fired a shot at Confederated Salish and Kootenai tribal police officer T.J. Haynes, who tried to arrest Allen on outstanding warrants. Haynes was not injured.

District Judge James Manley set Allen’s trial for June 1. Allen remains jailed in Lake County on $250,000 bond.
