BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — Police in Montana say a woman kicked and struck her boyfriend with a shotgun because he said bad things about her in his sleep.

Police tell the Bozeman Daily Chronicle that 24-year-old Sara Ann Bade of Willow Creek was arrested at her home at about 2 a.m. Monday.

She appeared in Gallatin County Justice Court that morning on a felony charge of assault with a weapon.

The boyfriend tells police the two were sleeping when he awoke to Bade kicking him and telling him he was talking in his sleep and saying bad things about her. He said she also shot out his front tire and smashed his windshield when he tried to leave. He wasn't seriously injured.

Bade says the two had been fighting and her boyfriend struck her and wouldn't leave when she asked him.
