Sheriff’s Deputy Assaulted, Teen Arrested

Roosevelt County Sheriff Freedom Crawford reports that on Oct. 13, sheriff’s deputies assisted the Wolf Point City Police Department with removal of intoxicated people at 214 Granville Street.

Upon investigation, one of the intoxicated subjects was non-compliant with lawful commands and began to assault a Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Deputy with a knife. The subject, 19-year-old Keaton Wolff, also spit a foreign substance in the deputy’s face.

Wolff was subdued by the deputy and placed into handcuffs.

The deputy received a laceration to the bridge of his nose and went to the Northeast Montana Health Services for treatment.

Wolff was arrested and charged into Fort Peck Tribal Court with two counts of assault on an officer, assault with bodily fluids, carrying a concealed weapon, hindering law enforcement and protection of an officer.

Crawford turned the case over to the Fort Peck Tribes Criminal Investigation unit for further prosecution.
