HELENA – A Missoula man is accused of threatening to shoot two people with a handgun and stealing their American flag.

42 year-old Brian McEvoy appeared in Lewis and Clark County Justice Court Thursday on felony charges of assault with a weapon, robbery, and misdemeanor criminal mischief.

Court documents say around two Thursday morning, two people were almost involved in a motor vehicle collision with McEvoy.

During a confrontation that followed, McEvoy allegedly pointed a handgun at the individuals and then chased them, while threatening to shoot them.

Police say after the victims ran off, McEvoy removed an American flag from the truck, and threw items across the roadway before leaving.

The judge set bond at $40,000.
