The Missoulian reports 21-year-old Matthew Brian Hermanson entered his plea in Justice Court on Monday and was fined $635.

Hermanson was arrested on Sept. 22 after a sheriff’s deputy saw someone throw a large, white object onto the road. The sergeant found Hermanson, shirtless and bleeding, walking along the road.
