BOZEMAN, Mont. -

A 22-year-old Livingston man who police say shot a woman twice outside a Taco Bell in Bozeman has pleaded not guilty to two felony charges of attempted deliberate homicide and one misdemeanor charge of carrying a switchblade knife.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports that Nathaniel John Budd pleaded not guilty Friday in Gallatin County District Court.

Budd was arrested Dec. 1 after police said he shot at a man and woman in a vehicle at the Gallatin Valley Mall. Court records say the woman suffered two bullet wounds after she and Budd reportedly argued. The woman was treated at a hospital and released.

Budd is being held in the Gallatin County jail on $100,000 bond.
