KALISPELL – A Kalispell man entered “not guilty” pleas in court Thursday after being accused of firing a shotgun atlaw enforcement on the night of January 24.

22-year-old Cody Lindahl appeared in Flathead County District Court Thursday and pleaded “not guilty” to three felonies: aggravated burglary, criminal endangerment and assault with a weapon.

Lindahl’s lawyer specified in court Thursday that Lindahl’s mother called 911 reporting that her son was high on meth and walking around with a shotgun on the night of January 24. Once officers arrived, Lindahl shot in their direction, before eventually surrendering.

No one was injured during the incident.

Lindahl’s defense requested his $250,000 bail be lowered, which was denied.

A jury trial is tentatively scheduled for August 19. He faces up to 40 years in prison if convicted.
