Montana woman threatens to kill officers, families during arrest

Posted: Updated:

BOZEMAN - A Bozeman woman appeared in Gallatin County Justice Court on Tuesday on a felony charge of intimidation.

Heidi Craig, 46, is a registered violent offender and was in custody for making verbal threats against police officers and their families. Craig’s bond was set a $25,000.

On Dec. 23, officers responded to a report of a domestic situation involving a man and woman arguing outside the Super 8 hotel at 800 Wheat Drive.

Upon arriving at the hotel, officers were initially directed by a female employee to Room 103 on the first floor. They determined this was a separate call, and two of the officers proceeded to the second floor to search for the domestic call.

One of the officers called for an additional unit on the second floor. When the additional officers arrived, they saw a man on the second-floor hallway in handcuffs. Further down the hallway, the officer requesting backup was attempting to place Craig, who was yelling, into custody.

The three officers together were able to get Craig to face a wall and put her hands behind her back. She was arrested and secured in a patrol vehicle for transport to the Gallatin County Detention Center.

On the way to the Detention Center, Craig made threats to the officers and their families, allegedly shouting “I’m gonna (expletive)  kill you all,” and “I’ll kill your children too, you (expletive).” She reportedly continued threatening the officers and their families as she was booked into the Detention Center.

Judge Robert J. Quinn set Craig’s bail at $25,000, pending a District Court trial for the felony charge. She is not to have any contact with the officers involved or their families.
