Man Pleads Not Guilty To Pepper Spraying Missoula Woman And Dog

Posted: Updated:

A Missoula man accused of pepper-spraying a woman and her dog in October pleaded not guilty on Monday, to a misdemeanor assault charge. Ronald Pagel appeared in Missoula County Justice Court Monday afternoon on a misdemeanor charge of assault causing a bodily injury.

Court documents show in October, a Missoula woman was walking her dog off it's leash in the Pattee Canyon recreation area. Documents said when they came across Pagel, the woman called her dog, but it did not respond. When it got within five feet of him, Pagel pepper-sprayed it in the face. The woman threatened to report Pagel, but he told her she wasn't getting his information and pepper-sprayed her.

Documents show Pagel went to the sheriff's department three days later, claiming he had bad experiences with dogs. He will back in court next month.
