Several firearms calls last weekend kept law enforcement busy on the east end of Roosevelt County. No injuries were reported in any of the incidents.
Two calls came in nearly simultaneously at approximately 3:30 a.m. Sunday, June 22, in Culbertson.
The first call was to the Montana Bar for a report of a male with a weapon. The establishment was not open, but patrons were standing outside. A Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Office deputy responded and no charges were filed.
The second call was to Twight’s Bottom, a local party/fishing spot south of Culbertson on the Roosevelt County side of the Missouri River. The caller reported that a male had been threatening others with a shotgun, but that they were holding the male down and had taken the firearm away.
The RCSO arrested Cody Twomey of Culbertson for felony assault with a weapon and possession of an intoxicating substance under the age of 21 but over the age of 18.
At 6 a.m., the RCSO assisted the Fort Peck Tribes Department of Law and Justice with a possible domestic violence call with a weapon in Brockton. No charges were filed and no one was taken into custody.
Later that evening, the RCSO assisted the Brockton City Police and Fort Peck Tribes Department of Law and Justice.
Three male suspects had gotten into an altercation and had barricaded themselves, reportedly with a firearm, into a residence on Circle Drive in Brockton.
Two males came out of the house and were not arrested. The third was located by law enforcement and was arrested on a tribal warrant.
The incident reportedly started over a fight call a short distance away from the home. No firearm was located by law enforcement.
Additional charges are pending.
