MISSOULA, Mont. – Shhhh! Arrest under way.
A man fleeing police after a traffic stop in Missoula, Mont., ran into the city library Wednesday and hid in a restroom, prompting an evacuation while police arrested him.
Police say the man refused to get out of his vehicle during a traffic stop. While driving away, he struck the front tire of a bicycle. Lt. Geron Wade says the bicyclist did not appear to be seriously injured.
Officers responded to the library after someone called police reporting a very nervous-looking man standing on the sidewalk outside.
Wade says an officer spotted the man going into a restroom and the library was evacuated for about 30 minutes while he was arrested.
