GREAT FALLS -

Kevin Parisian, charged for an incident that resulted in him being shot by a Great Falls police officer, pleaded not guilty on Thursday to aggravated kidnapping and assault with a weapon.

In April, police officers were called to a Central Avenue apartment building for an assault.

As officers approached the apartment, they said the apartment door flew open, and they saw Parisian standing in the doorway with a knife pointed at a woman’s neck.

Court documents say that officers ordered Parisian to drop the knife, but he did not comply. 

Because of the apparent danger to the woman and Parisian's refusal to obey the officers' commands to drop the knife, one of the officers shot him, according to court documents.

Parisian was taken to Benefis Health System for treatment of his injury.

After being released from Benefis hospital, he was arrested on a $250,000 warrant.

The incident drew a large police presence, and the area was blocked off for several hours as authorities investigated.

The victim told police officers that Parisian had beat her with a speaker and pulled out her hair. 

According to court documents, her shirt was covered with blood from the assault.

The woman was taken to Benefis for treatment of the injuries she sustained in the altercation with the man.
