KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - A Kalispell man accused of cutting the brake lines in his mother’s car after an argument has pleaded guilty.

The Daily Inter Lake reports (https://bit.ly/1PBvJ2Q ) 23-year-old Corey Jonathan Woods entered guilty pleas Thursday to criminal endangerment and drug charges as part of a plea deal.

Woods said he cut his mother’s brake lines June 15 after getting into a dispute with her.

His mother had called authorities from the side of the U.S. 93 bypass to report that her brakes hadn’t responded when she went downhill. She downshifted to get the car to stop.

A deputy inspected the vehicle and found that the brake lines had been severed with a knife.



Woods says his mother has forgiven him for the incident.

Woods was also jailed for possessing methamphetamine in March.
