New charges filed against Montana State Senator Jason Priest of Red Lodge. One of the new charges is felony assault on a minor after allegedly throwing his 4-year-old daughter on the same night he allegedly shoved his estranged wife and had a scuffle with a police officer. The Montana Attorney General's Office filed the charge Wednesday, along with a misdemeanor assault count accusing Priest of attacking his wife's boyfriend. He plead not guilty to partner/family member assault and resisting arrest. The Montana Department of Justice is now investigating those charges.
