MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - A 32-year-old Missoula man faces several charges alleging he nearly hit four pedestrians while speeding, fled a traffic stop and kicked a police dog.

The Missoulian reports (bit.ly/2jzIepC) David William Wozniak was charged Monday with felony criminal endangerment and several misdemeanors including driving under the influence of drugs and harming a police dog. Justice of the Peace Marie Anderson set his bail at $50,000 Monday.

Court records say Officer Tim Harrington saw a speeding Jeep nearly hit four pedestrians while making a turn at about 12:30 a.m. Sunday.

Harrington tried to pull over the vehicle, but the driver fled eventually going off the road.

Court records say Wozniak refused to get out of the vehicle and Harrington released his K-9, which jumped into Wozniak’s Jeep.

Prosecutors say Wozniak repeatedly kicked the dog in the face. Wozniak said he was acting in self-defense.
