A Hungry Horse woman has denied allegations that she fired a gun at her boyfriend’s truck in October.

Joslyn Walker pleaded not guilty to felony criminal endangerment on Nov. 23 in Flathead County District Court. She will stand trial in 2017.

According to court documents, Walker and her boyfriend had gotten into an altercation at a bar near Coram. Early on the morning of Oct. 30, the two people left the bar in separate vehicles and drove back to a home in Hungry Horse where the fight continued. The argument got the attention of nearby neighbors who reportedly called the police.

One neighbor told law enforcement that he saw Walker go into her vehicle to get a gun and start shooting at the man’s truck. The boyfriend later told police he was standing right next to the truck when Walker began shooting. Soon after, Flathead County Sheriff’s deputies arrived and found multiple bullet holes in the boyfriend’s vehicle and a nearby boat. No one was injured in the shooting.

If convicted, Walker could face 10 years in prison and a $50,000 fine.
