Bail reduction denied for Gallagher in stabbing case

Posted: Jan 29, 2018 3:28 PM Updated:

Thomas Gallagher, charged recently with assault with a weapon after he allegedly stabbed a man in Great Falls, has been denied a reduction in his bail amount.

The stabbing happened at about 1:20 a.m. on Saturday, December 23rd, at a home on the 3800 block of 9th Avenue South.

A man called 911 to report that he had been stabbed.

Responding officers learned that Gallagher and two other men had been drinking with other people at the residence, and Gallagher and a man got into a physical fight.

Another man intervened and separated the two; at that point, according to court documents, Gallagher produced a knife and stabbed the man who had intervened.

The knife narrowly missed the femoral artery, according to court documents.

The knife was later found inside the residence.

Prosecutors requested that bond for Gallagher be set at $75,000 due to "multiple victims and the severity of the injuries to the victim."

On Monday, Judge Elizabeth Best denied a bail reduction request for Gallagher, due to the nature of the alleged crime.

Court documents note that Gallagher has a conviction for misdemeanor theft.
