MHP trooper charged with assault in Great Falls

Posted: Jan 12, 2018 11:05 AM Updated:

GREAT FALLS - A Montana Highway Patrol trooper has been charged with partner/family member assault in Great Falls.

A probable cause affidavit says that at about 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 9, Michael George Flood became upset that the alleged victim in the case "speaks to others about his personal business."

The affidavit says that the woman did not want to argue, so she left the room and went to the bedroom. Flood followed her, and she tried to duck beneath his extended arm. She alleges that Flood then grabbed her neck, causing her to fall. The woman went into the living room, where she says Flood again confronted her and grabbed her by the neck with both hands. The woman then left the house.

The woman later told police that there had been previous incidents of physical violence, but she was reluctant to report them because she did not want to cause problems with Flood's career.

She also told police that in an incident about a month ago, Flood caused injury to her thumb, requiring her to wear a cast.

Flood has pleaded not guilty to the charge. The next court hearing in the case is scheduled for March.

The Montana Highway Patrol said in an email to MTN News: "The MHP is aware of the allegations made against Trooper Flood. Upon MHP’s awareness of the incident, Trooper Flood was immediately placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation. The case is under the jurisdiction of the Great Falls Police Department."
