39 year-old James Richards appeared in Missoula Justice Court this afternoon, after allegedly leading Missoula County Sheriff's Deputies on a high-speed chase through East Missoula, Bonner and onto Highway 200 where he allegedly ran a sheriff's department vehicle off the road. I spoke with Deputy Missoula County Attorney Patricia Bower on Monday afternoon about the charges against Richards. That interview is attached. Richards was seen by Judge Karen Orzech, and is currently in the Missoula County Jail on $100,000 bail. Bowers expects more charges to be filed in District Court.
