Missoula Police Arrest Man After Attack With Pipe, Shopping Cart Theft
Missoula Police took a man into custody Friday after a call came in to 911 that he was threatening others with a metal pipe.
"A male called and reported that another male had threatened him with a metal pipe, swung it in a threatening fashion and actually chased him with it, before he was able to get away and call 911," said Missoula Police Public Information Officer Travis Welsh. "Through the initial investigation, the officers were able to identify and locate 68-year-old Larry Hurley, Mr. Hurley was walking away from the area with a shopping cart that did contain a couple of metal pipes."
More charges began piling up when Andrew Hurley was confronted by officers.
"It appears that he had an outstanding misdemeanor warrant and he is also being charged with misdemeanor theft for being in possession of a shopping cart that was taken from a local grocery store," Welsh said.
Hurley is now in the Missoula County Jail with bond set at $50,000 for a felony assault with a weapons charge.
