BOZEMAN, Mont. (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — A 28-year-old North Texas man is jailed in southwestern Montana after prosecutors say he was trying to hit pedestrians with his sport utility vehicle near a Bozeman bar.
Bryan Curtis Paluk of Lewisville made an initial appearance in Gallatin County Justice Court Monday on a charge of felony criminal endangerment. Justice of the Peace Bryan Adams set Paluk's bail at $50,000.
Court records say Paluk was arrested Friday night after people reported someone driving an Isuzu SUV was trying to hit pedestrians.
Witnesses say the SUV hit a one-way street sign and a bar sign before driving onto the sidewalk and toward a group of people. The people hid behind a tree. Witnesses say the SUV hit another tree and became disabled after hitting a light pole.
Witnesses detained Paluk.
