BOZEMAN - A man accused of pointing a gun at another man in a Bozeman alley appeared in Gallatin County Justice Court today on a charge of assault with a weapon.
Nicholas Ramlow, 29, of Bozeman is being held in the detention center on a $10,000 bond.
At around 12:20 a.m. Monday, police responded to the area of North Black east alleyway where Ramlow began yelling at an officer that he was a Marine and threw his ID at the police car, according to court documents.
Ramlow reportedly told police he was in the alley when he was approached by another man who he said seemed "deceitful." Ramlow said he pulled a firearm from the door of his truck, pointed it at the man's head and removed the safety. Ramlow said he told the man to stop, which he did. Ramlow then pointed the gun at a second man, told him to move then got into his truck and pulled onto North Black, according to court documents.
A 9mm pistol was found in the door of Ramlow's truck, court papers state.
Ramlow is living in Bozeman but is employed in Williston, North Dakota.
