POLSON — A Ronan man was committed at District Court in Polson on Oct. 12 to the Montana Department of Corrections for a period of four years, with all that time suspended, on one count of assault on a peace officer. That man, Clint Headdress Irvine, 30, was also committed to the DOC for six years with four years suspended for criminal mischief. Judge Molly Owen ordered the sentences to run consecutively to each other.

According to court records, Irvine was the subject of a trespassing complaint on Jan. 23. A deputy with the Lake County Sheriff’s office arrived and located Irvine. Irvine was wanted on an outstanding warrant and was detained by the deputy. While being placed in the back seat of the deputy’s patrol car, Irvine head butted the deputy causing the deputy’s glasses to cut the side of his head.

In the criminal mischief case, Irvine admitted to slashing the tires of numerous vehicles in the Ronan area June 7. At least 41 tires were reported as slashed that day.

Judge Owen ordered Irvine to pay restitution of $6,569.69 to the victims of the tire slashing. She also gave Irvine credit for having served 129 days in the Lake County jail.
