Bail reduction denied for Parisian

Posted: Mar 07, 2018 3:33 PM Updated:

Kevin Parisian, the man who was shot and injured by Great Falls police last April, was back in court Wednesday morning.

Parisian was hoping to lower his bail in Cascade County Court.

Parisian is charged with aggravated kidnapping, assault with a weapon, partner family member assault, and tampering with a communication device.

Prosecutors said they have concerns with lowering Parisian’s bound due to the safety of the victim.

Judge John Parker held Parisian’s bond at $250,000 and his trial is set for April 16th.

Court documents state that Parisian was involved in a fight with a woman at an apartment at 4251 Central Avenue last April.

Great Falls Police Chief David Bowen said that officers were dispatched to the disturbance at about 9:45 p.m.  As officers approached the apartment, they said the apartment door flew open, and they saw Parisian standing in the doorway with a knife pointed at a woman’s neck.

Court documents say that officers ordered Parisian to drop the knife, but he did not comply. 

Because of the apparent danger to the woman and Parisian's refusal to obey the officers commands to drop the knife, one of the officers shot him, according to court documents.

Parisian was taken to Benefis Health System for treatment of his injury.

After being released from Benefis hospital, he was arrested on a $250,000 warrant.
