Missoula Man With Nazi Tattoo Arrested After Spitting on Woman
Around 4:30 Sunday afternoon, July 15, Missoula Police were called out to a grocery store on Orange Street after a woman reported to 911 that she had been spit on. Missoula Police Spokesman Travis Welsh explains.
"The complainant said that her ex-husband had driven by her in the parking lot at that location and spit on her," said Missoula Police Public Information Officer Travis Welsh. "The officer learned that the male, who is identified as Calen Giguere was currently a non-compliant violent offender and had at least two prior convictions for violating a temporary order of protection."
According to the Montana Violent Offender Registry, Giguere is supposed to register as a violent offender after an assault with a weapon conviction in 2008, he is described by the registry as having a Nazi tattoo on his back. Police followed a tip on where the suspect's vehicle may have gone and also learned that his Montana driver’s license had been revoked. A pursuing officer saw him driving on Broadway.
"He initiated a traffic stop," Welsh said. "The driver produced identification from another state, but refused to confirm that he was, in fact, Gigurere. He refused to comply with any instructions from the officer. The officer was forced to pull him out of vehicle and down to the ground where he was taken into custody. Gigurere did suffer minor injuries as a result."
Gigurere went to the hospital for a check-up before going to jail, his booking photo shows a laceration on his forehead. He was held on felony charges for his third violation of a protective order and for failing to register as a violent offender. He received misdemeanor charges for resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
