MISSOULA, Mont. — Columbia Falls police confirm a suspect is in custody after a car plowed through the Super One grocery in Columbia Falls Thursday evening.

The man is believed to be 40 to 50 years old. Investigators say they do not have a motive. Witnesses say they are amazed no one was injured.

Witnesses tell us they watched a white car drive up and down the aisles.

We have a crew on the scene and talking with witnesses who say they ran and tried to hide behind the bakery counter.

Stunning video shows widespread damage in the aftermath of the incident.

Looks like drugs. Lots and lots of drugs. I'm still waiting to hear about anything he (suspect) said though.




COLUMBIA FALLS — UPDATE: 10:14 a.m. - Nov. 13

A man was taken into custody on Thursday after driving through a Columbia Falls grocery store before crashing his vehicle and fleeing on foot.

Columbia Falls Police Chief Clint Peters said a man in his 50s drove his vehicle, a 1995 Chevrolet Lumina, into Super 1 Foods around 5:50 p.m.

After coming in through the front doors, the man then drove down an aisle to the back of the store, before turning around and driving down another aisle. He then left through the front doors and crashed the vehicle across the highway.

Within minutes, Chief Peters said police were advised of a nude male running down a hallway of a nearby retirement home that was near the area where the Chevrolet Lumina was abandoned.

Peters said the nude male fled on foot but was eventually taken into custody near the Columbia Falls mini-storage area. Peters said a short investigation determined that the nude male was in fact the driver of the Chevrolet Lumina that had driven through Super One.

Peters said the man showed signs of drug impairment at the time of his arrest.

The suspect was transported to a local hospital for non-injury medical issues and will be transported to the Flathead County Detention Center when he is medically cleared.

I work a short distance from this store and go there frequently. I intended, as a matter of fact to be there about the time that this happened, but picked something else up for supper tonight.

4. And no one was hurt?

That is amazing. The court needs to bill him for the damage.
Was this a temper tantrum?

12. What the?

I predict that this was a local having a tRumper tantrum or one of the many out of staters from a southern state who’ve recently relocated to MT to escape Covid and have lost their damned mind due to winter already kicking our asses.

Update us Maru!
