Partner and family member assault

Police arrested a 29-year-old Butte man for allegedly shoving his wife and her mother to the ground on Tuesday.

At 7:30 p.m., officers responded to the 300 block of North Jackson Street on a disturbance call. A woman told police she got into an argument with her husband, Michael Peterson-Crane, in their kitchen when he shoved her to the ground. Each time she attempted to leave, he would push her down again, she told police. She reportedly managed to get away and run to her mother’s house in the 500 block of West Granite Street. The woman told officers that she and her mother then returned to her house to get six children out of the North Jackson residence. As they were getting the children out of the home, Peterson-Crane allegedly came outside and pushed his wife’s 72-year-old mother to the ground and injured her hip.

Police arrived, arrested Peterson-Crane and booked him on two counts of partner or family member assault with minor injury. The children were unharmed and the two women refused medical attention.

Escape from Acadia

Four minors reportedly escaped from the Acadia Montana Treatment Center on Tuesday evening.

At about 5 p.m., police received a call about minors who had allegedly run from the facility. Officers subsequently located a 15-year-old, two 13-year-olds and a 9-year-old walking south through a field in the area. They were transported back to Acadia.
