MISSOULA — A Missoula man was arrested for assaulting a cab driver near the Poverello Center over the weekend.

Tristian McVey, 25, is being charged with assault with a weapon and criminal mischief for allegedly breaking a car window with a baton.

According to court documents, on Saturday McVey was standing in the middle of the road near the 1100 block of Broadway Street, when a cab driver stopped.

McVey refused to move, threatened the driver, and smashed out the driver's side window with a weapon.

He was later arrested after "causing problems" at the Poverello Center. Court documents state that he told officers he broke the car window and that he was drunk.

McVey is being held in the Missoula County Detention Center on $10,000 bond.
