POLSON — At approximately 10:45 a.m. on Sept. 28, officers executed a search warrant that led to the arrest of a Polson man. 

According to testimony provided in court, Christopher Woods, 26, allegedly shot his mother-in-law multiple times with a BB gun with the encouragement of his wife earlier this summer. Some of the BBs lodged in her skin, and police were involved. 

The subsequent investigation led to the execution of a search warrant at 509 4th Avenue East, during which officers in body armor ordered the residents out of the house with their hands up. Three individuals emerged, including Woods. According to Polson Police Captain George Simpson, the evidence they were searching for was obtained, and Woods was placed under arrest. 

Woods was taken to the Lake County Jail and awaits trial for assault with a weapon.
