State Senator Pleads Not Guilty

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

A state senator from Red Lodge pled not guilty to four charges in Carbon County District Court.

Jason Priest is charged with assault on a minor, partner or family member assault, assault and resisting arrest.

Charging documents show on February 1, Priest's daughter suffered a one-inch bump on her head and Jonathan Trapp, Anna Priest's boyfriend, had a fractured rib. Anna Priest, Jason Priest's estranged wife, went to pick up her three children and says Priest yelled obscenities at his wife.

The documents say Priest pushed Anna Priest down the stairs of the porch and threw his 4-year-old daughter inside of the house when she tried to leave. Priest also repeatedly punched Trapp and told police he would do it again if Trapp ever got on his property.

Police described Priest as being in a "blind rage."
