GREAT FALLS - Michelle Runningcrane, 22, and Tiffany Bremner, 30, were arrested early Sunday after reportedly crashing a stolen car, breaking into a camper, and threatening to shoot an off-duty police officer.
It happened near a fireworks stand on the Northwest Bypass at around 3:30 a.m. when the pair allegedly crashed a stolen Subaru through a chain link fence and pulled up in front the fireworks stand.
An off-duty officer staying at a nearby camper told the pair to stay away from the stand.
Court documents state that Runningcrane then approached the camper, punched her hand through the screen door, and grabbed the officer's radio.
The two got into a fight and the officer was injured.
Runningcrane reportedly then yelled at Bremner to shoot the officer; she repeated this several times.
That's when backup arrived and the two women were arrested.
Court documents say a loaded 9-millimeter handgun was found in the stolen car.
Both women face multiple charges, including theft, burglary, and criminal mischief.
They're each being held on $100,000 bail.
