Assault via chicken wings

Raisa Williams, 23, of Butte was cited with misdemeanor simple assault late Tuesday night after she confronted a boyfriend whom she thought was cheating by allegedly smashing his face into a carton of chicken wings.

According to police, employees at Buffalo Wild Wings on Harrision Avenue phoned law enforcement after Williams came into the restaurant and confronted her boyfriend and a woman he was with, both of whom were dining at the establishment. In addition to allegedly smashing the wings on the boyfriend’s head, the 23-year-old is also alleged to have grabbed the woman’s head and pushed it into a plate of food.

Police arrested Williams and took her to Butte county jail, where she remained Wednesday morning.

Bad meth leads to arrest

Police say a suspicious male walking through residential yards Tuesday afternoon caused residents on Missoula Avenue and Fifth Street to phone police.

When officers arrived, police said, they caught up with Brennan Downey, 22, of Deer Lodge, who allegedly said that he had taken some bad meth at an acquaintance’s house and had started to hallucinate. Downey allegedly said he broke a TV at the friend’s house, and had gotten kicked out of the residence as a result.

Police took Downey to Butte county jail, where they discovered several syringes, baggies containing meth and spoons with a powdery residue in his possession. As a result, Downey has been cited with felony possession of dangerous drugs and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Mineyard theft

Police responded to the Mountain Con mineyard Tuesday morning after receiving a report about a suspicious vehicle in the area.

According to police, witnesses observed two men walking away from the yard’s pump house carrying a wagon toward a vehicle.

Officers enlisted the help of county employees to assess whether anything had been taken at the Mountain Con. The results of that assessment are still pending, but police said they believe the two men may have taken copper wire from the mineyard.

Police said the incident could be related to a Feb. 22 theft at the Lexington mineyard, from which thieves allegedly stole more than 8 feet of piping and a camera and damaged a set of doors.

Police said they have at least one suspect for the Lexington theft and are awaiting a warrant for his arrest.
