KALISPELL, Mont. -

A 47-year-old Kalispell man who aimed a rifle at a store clerk following a dispute about paying for gas has pleaded guilty to felony criminal endangerment.
    
The Daily Inter Lake reports (http://bit.ly/1h6qc6w) that Richard Boggess entered the plea Dec. 19 in Flathead District Court.
    
The clerk told police that Boggess came into the store and argued about paying for gas. The clerk said Boggess then went to his truck, pulled out a rifle, and aimed it at the clerk through the window.
    
Boggess put the rifle back in the vehicle and tried to go back into the store, but the clerk held the door shut.
    
Witnesses reported the same thing had happened.
    
Boggess faces up to 10 years in prison and a $50,000 fine.
    
Sentencing is set for Feb. 13.
