Man who pointed loaded gun at BIA officer gets more than 3 years in prison


Bureau of Indian Affairs Special Agent John Dodd told a federal judge in Billings on Wednesday that he'd had “a weird feeling” that something might not go right when he went to talk to Lame Deer resident Dean James Small about an assault report.

Dodd testified at a hearing in which U.S. District Judge Susan Watters sentenced Small, 49, to three years and five months in prison for his guilty plea to assault on a federal officer.

Dodd recounted his Oct. 9, 2015, struggle with Small over a pistol saying he thought Small was going to shoot him.
