KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) - Authorities say a convicted felon in Montana assaulted two sheriff’s deputies with bear spray.

The Daily Inter Lake reports (https://bit.ly/1PAe4Lb ) that Flathead County Sheriff Chuck Curry says the deputies were planning to question a 23-year-old man about reports that he was peeping into a window on Sunday night.

Curry says the man then pulled out a can of bear spray and sprayed it at the two deputies. He ran off but was caught by the deputies.

Court documents say both officers were in pain and temporarily blinded. Curry says they are doing fine now.

The man has previously been convicted of assault with a weapon and criminal possession of dangerous drugs.
