A Helena man is accused of attempting to run over his partner with a truck.
Gregory Ireland, 30, is being charged with assault with a weapon, a felony, and criminal mischief, a misdemeanor.
Officers responded to a landlord/tenant issue on Feb. 4 and spoke with a woman who told them that Ireland had tried to run her down on Feb. 2, according to court documents.
The woman told officers that she had run up a snowbank to avoid being hit by the pickup truck.
Ireland allegedly pursued the woman on foot before leaving, according to court documents. Ireland told officers the woman had run up the snowbank not because she was being chased, but simply because she wanted to, according to court documents.
Witnesses corroborated the woman’s story.
