(HELENA) Brian McEvoy is accused of threatening to shoot two people with a handgun and stealing their American flag.

McEvoy, 42 years old, appeared in Lewis & Clark County Justice Court on Thursday on felony charges of assault with a weapon, robbery, and misdemeanor criminal mischief.

Court documents say that around 2 a.m. on Thursday, two people were almost involved in a vehicle crash with McEvoy.

During a confrontation that followed, McEvoy allegedly pointed a gun at the two people and then chased them, while threatening to shoot them.

Police say after the victims ran off, McEvoy removed an American flag from the truck, and threw items across the road before leaving.

The judge set bond for McEvoy at $40,000.
