A perturbed passerby contacted the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office after witnessing a motorist swerve into a mud puddle on U.S. 2 East and dowse with muddy water a pair of girls who looked to be 10 years old. While it was initially reported that the driver and his passenger high-fived after giving the girls their impromptu mud bath, it was later discovered that the driver swerved to miss a pothole and accidentally hit the puddle, and the “high-five” was really his girlfriend reaching over and slapping him. The driver was cited for driving with a suspended license and was also advised of his warrant.
An unlucky (or is that lucky?) Echo Retreat Drive man was transported to the hospital after he picked up a revolver and accidentally fired it, with the bullet grazing his head.
