House Republican Leader Kurt Daudt was involved in a dispute in Montana last September.

It started as a dispute over the sale of an old truck and ended with a gun pulled.

The documents signed by the county attorney say Daudt was arrested. Minority leader Daudt says he was read his rights and put in handcuffs, but he says he was not arrested.

A friend Daudt was traveling with was charged with three felonies.

KSTP's Jay Kolls spoke with Daudt in an exclusive interview.

EDITOR'S NOTE: KSTP decided to redact the name of the individual charged in this case, because we would not normally cover a story like this, if it did not include a public official such as the House Minority Leader. Our coverage focuses on the behavior of the elected official in this story. The person charged, in this case, is not a public official, or a public person. The crime he is accused of did not physically injure anyone and did not result in any shots fired.
