Arlee Man Arrested After Hit-and-Run

By Beacon Staff

POLSON – Officials in Lake County say a 21-year-old Arlee man faces criminal endangerment charges after four people were struck by a pickup truck in the parking lot of a Charlo bar over the weekend.

Law enforcement officers were called to the bar at 1:53 a.m. Sunday and the injured were taken to the hospital. Officials have not released any information about their conditions.

The sheriff’s office says the pickup left the scene and Jared Hendrickson was arrested about an hour later by Flathead Tribal Police. His passenger, 20-year-old Alexandria Trejo-Courchane, was cited for minor in possession.

Hendrickson was jailed without bond pending his arraignment.
