Man accused of eluding police appears in court
A man accused of trying to elude police in Missoula was charged with three felony counts of criminal endangerment and four misdemeanors at a court appearance Monday.
Missoula police tell us 19-year-old Tristan McVey was pulled over Saturday evening for driving on a suspended license.
After McVey came to a stop, police tell NBC Montana he accelerated past officers and into a residential neighborhood on Missoula’s westside.
According to officials that’s where he ran over two small trees and nearly plowed into a Missoula mom and her son.
Officials tell us they were able to arrest the suspect after he collided with a parked car.
McVey’s bail was set at $5,000 and he is due back in court later this month.
