POLSON — The imposition of sentencing was deferred for a period of three years at District Court in Polson on April 20 for a Ronan woman convicted in a road rage incident. Anjelica Dawn Lozeau, 28, pleaded guilty to the amended charge of felony criminal endangerment on Feb. 9. She was initially charged with felony assault with a weapon for wielding a hatchet at another motorist.

According to court records, on Oct. 24, 2021, a woman called law enforcement to report she had just been rear-ended by another vehicle and was threatened by the driver of that vehicle with a hatchet. The woman told responding officers that she was driving down Polson Hill on U.S. Highway 93 when another motorists approached at a high rate of speed and hit her car. She said she pulled over to speak with the person driving the vehicle that struck hers. That’s when the other motorist, later identified as Lozeau, allegedly held a hatchet out her window and said, “I will kill you, you white bi***.” The woman reporting the incident said she was scared. Lozeau took off in her car but was followed by the alleged victim to an apartment complex in Polson. When police arrived at the apartment complex, Lozeau admitted to holding the hatchet and threatening the other driver. Police recovered a hatchet from Lozeau’s vehicle.

In addition to deferring the imposition of sentencing, Judge James Manley ordered Lozeau to pay restitution to the victim of $817.
