Police release 911 call involving Bob Edwards

Posted: Updated:

The Helena Police Department on Wednesday released audio of the 911 call that was made on June 15th that resulted in Cascade County Sheriff Bob Edwards being cited for misdemeanor partner-family member assault.

The incident happened at the Radisson Colonial Hotel in Helena shortly before 5:30 p.m.

Edwards is accused of pushing his girlfriend into a T.V. stand, allegedly causing injury.

According to the "call for service" log of the Helena Police Department, the person who reported the incident from the hotel told dispatchers that a woman could be heard yelling about a gun and heard her screaming about a man throwing her against a TV.

There has not been any confirmation from law enforcement at this point that a gun was involved, nor have any weapons-related charges been filed.

The call log notes that the call was made by law enforcement officers from Flathead County and Garfield County; the hotel was hosting the Montana Sheriff's & Peace Officers Association annual convention at the time.

Edwards pleaded not guilty at his initial hearing before Judge Robert Wood in Helena later that night.

The Helena Police Department released the following information later on Wednesday afternoon:

On June 15, 2017, the Helena Police Department responded to a 911 call that originated from the Radisson Hotel located at 2301 Colonial Drive. The caller advised that there was a “some sort of a domestic” situation going on between a male and a female in the room across from that of the caller. The caller informed the 911 dispatcher that the caller heard the female yelling about a gun and the male throwing the female into the TV. When HPD responded, it was determined that the male in question was Robert Lawrence Edwards. It was also determined that medical did not need to respond to the scene. It is unknown at this time if the hotel sustained any property damage from the incident and no restitution requests have been submitted. Alcohol may have been a factor.

Following the investigation, Edwards was issued a citation for a misdemeanor Partner or Family Member Assault. Edwards was evaluated and released by the Crisis Response Team.

Pursuant to 45-5- 206(3)(i), MCA, first offense partner or family member assault shall be fined not less than $100 or more than $1000 and be imprisoned in the county jail for a term not to exceed 1 year or not less than 24 hours.
