Ravalli County pursuit

MISSOULA — The Ravalli County Sheriff's Office said it has one man in custody following a brief pursuit in Florence on Saturday.

Officers received reports of a threat near 8 mile road and attempted a traffic stop. A male driver failed to stop, and led police to Highway 93 near the Ace Hardware store, where he eventually stopped.

The suspect had "a couple" firearms according to Ravalli County Sheriff Steve Holton, but surrendered without "real incident."

The man was arrested and is being held for intimidation and criminal endangerment. The investigation is ongoing.
