Man in jail for assaulting driver with metal pipe
KALISPELL, Mont. -

A Flathead man is behind bars after he reportedly slammed another man with a metal pipe Tuesday.

Court documents claim Joshua Darling and the alleged victim, William Giddeon, were in separate cars on Columbia Falls Stage Road. Prosecutors allege Giddeon followed Darling into a driveway after Darling flipped him off. Investigators say Darling parked, smashed in Giddeon's windows, and hit him with a metal pipe.

If convicted, Darling faces up to 20 years in prison.
