Attacker/local business owner Brad Terrell (About the case):

On November 12th, 2022 a small group of missionaries was walking on highway 287 north near Ennis Montana, when Brad Terrell, a local business owner pulled his vehicle over and confronted the missionaries yelling profanities and telling them they weren’t welcome in Montana, to go back home, striking one of the missionaries breaking his glasses, spitting and yelling inches from one missionary’s face, eventually bringing this missionary to the ground and sitting on top of him.

Left with no choice but to defend themselves from this attacker, they defended themselves to get away, drove a short distance to safety, and called 911.

Instead of arresting their attacker, the Sheriff’s Department arrested Jesse Boyd, Bethany Boyd, Eric Trent, and Carter Phillips on charges of aggravated assault … a maximum 20-year prison sentence. Also, Jesse Boyd’s 12-year-old son was placed in CPS custody.  All four are currently out on $50,000 bonds and must wear GPS ankle monitors.
