Missoula judge wants man to serve time for DUI incident

MISSOULA - A man who is accused of driving drunk over a Missoula footbridge and then hitting a pedestrian, once again, asked the judge to give him more time in his case.

A Missoula District judge rejected Paul Amyotte's plea agreement in December, because he wanted him to serve prison time for last February's incident.

Prosecutors say Amyotte's crime scene was a mile long: beginning in the Burger King Parking lot on East Broadway, crossing through the barriers of the Van Buren Footbridge and onto the Kim Williams Trail where he allegedly hit a 21-year-old man.

They say from there, Amyotte allegedly drove over two traffic circles in the University area and then crashed.

Amyotte's sentencing is set for the end of this month.
