Print Article

A Kalispell area man is being held at the Flathead County jail on pending charges of assault with a weapon following an incident late Friday evening that resulted with the Sheriff’s Office SWAT team responding, according to a press release Monday afternoon from Sheriff Brian Heino.

Glen Charland was taken into custody “after the use of less lethal munitions,” Heino said.

About 11 p.m. Friday the Sheriff’s Office received a report of a disturbance with a weapon in the 2600 block of U.S. 2 West. Deputies arrived on scene and made contact with a man and woman who stated they had stopped to pull a deer off the highway and had been shot at.

Deputies arrived on scene with Montana Highway Patrol. An investigation determined the suspect, later identified as Charland, was in a trailer on a nearby property, the press release said. Law enforcement attempted to negotiate with the subject, who refused to come out of the trailer. SWAT responded to the scene and a search warrant was obtained.

According to the narrative of the Sheriff’s Office dispatch logs, the reporting party said a man “came out and started shooting on the north side of the road.” The man was yelling, but it was unknown what he was saying. The narrative also states the reporting party allegedly was “hit with shrapnel in the stomach from a bullet,” but no medical assistance was needed.
