 GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) -- A 25-year-old Great Falls man faces several charges
after police say he tried to back his pickup truck over a patrol car.
   KFBB-TV reports  James Verhoeven made an initial court
 appearance Monday on charges including felony assault on a peace officer and
misdemeanor driving under the influence.
   Court records say police tried to stop a pickup truck that drove off after
apparently being high-centered on snow in the middle of the street on Saturday.
The pickup pulled into a parking lot and the officers pulled in behind it. Prosecutors
 allege Verhoeven tried to back his truck into the patrol car at a high rate
 of speed.
   Officers moved the car out of the way and blocked Verhoeven's vehicle from le
leaving. He then attempted to run away and was arrested.
