A sheriff’s deputy with Lewis and Clark County was arrested Monday morning after allegedly pulling a gun on a man at a party and assaulting him.

On December 4, Philip Jay Clark, 49, showed up to a bonfire party “super intoxicated,” according to the victim, identified as C.F. in court documents. 

“He (C.F) said Clark, ‘Got a little bit violent and a little bit aggressive right away.’ He said it seemed like Clark wanted to fight. He said after shaking Clark’s hand Clark, ‘pulled out his gun, pointed it at me and then laughed, handed it to somebody else like we were about to fight …,’” according to documents.

According to court records, Clark began hitting C.F. before asking him to name the capital of Thailand and punched him in the groin, yelling “Bangkok.” The drunken bigot cop then walked away.

As C.F.’s friend was telling him that it would probably be a good idea for him to leave, Clark became aggressive once again. He then pulled out his pistol, with his finger on the trigger, shoved it in C.F’s face and began referring to his non-Muslim Asian victim as “an ISIS.”

“[I was] 100% positive he was gonna start shooting,’” C.F. said, according to the documents.

Clark has since retained an attorney, Mathew Johnson, who claims that Clark was acting in self-defense when he interacted with C.F. Apparently resorting to schoolyard bully tactics of asking the capital of Thailand before punching him in the groin, was a means of deterring an attack from C.F.

“My client was very surprised that charges were filed without an investigator talking to him,” Johnson said, noting that Clark should have been given his special treatment due to his officer status.

According to Lewis and Clark County Sheriff Leo Dutton, after the party, a citizen called in to report Clark’s behavior. Dutton said that was when they launched the investigation.

Clark was booked on felony charges of assault with a deadly weapon and his bond was set at $50,000. However, likely due to his blue privilege, after appearing before the judge, Clark was released on his own recognizance.

The case has since been handed over to the Montana Department of Justice to avoid the conflict of interest of the Lewis and Clark County Sheriff’s Department investigating themselves.

The Free Thought Project’s request for the status of Clark’s employment was not immediately returned by the Lewis and Clark County Sheriff’s Department.

“I feel like Sophie Scholl, since I've been active in the resistance, giving speeches, going to protests, distributing flyers," the woman says to the audience, referring to the famous "White Rose" resistance fighter who opposed the Nazis during World War II.

The View’s Ana Navarro bashes Republicans refusing to stop Trump: ‘They’re going to go down in shame’

"The View" co-hosts are furious that President Donald Trump is still refusing to stand down after losing the 2020 election. To make matters worse, Republican communications consultant Ana Navarro blames Republicans for allowing the madness to persist for so long that it's now starting to put the United States in a compromised situation.

"Look, I don't know what it's going to take because really it should have happened weeks ago," said Navarro. "States are beginning to certify their results. Electors vote in a couple of weeks, but you know, Whoopi, I keep talking about history and how history is going to judge this. There are going to be books written about this. It's going to be studied by school kids in 30 years and 40 years."

Published

President Donald Trump on Sunday formally exited the Open Skies Treaty, but now he's moving to scrap the planes, ensuring President Joe Biden will not be able to re-enter the program easily.

The Open Skies Treaty is an 18-year old agreement designed to allow the U.S. to fly reconnaissance  missions over Russia to ensure the Pentagon and the President are informed of military deployments and movements. First proposed in 1992, the treaty was formalized in 2002. 34 nations are party to the agreement, and all are allowed to fly unarmed aircraft over any member nation. The goal is to ensure transparency and mutual understanding.
