A man accused of beating his girlfriend while she was driving him home from a bar pleaded guilty Thursday to aggravated assault.

Appearing in Yellowstone County District Court, Adam Patrick Breshears, 25, also pleaded guilty to misdemeanor partner or family member assault.

Charging documents say police responded to a disturbance around 1:15 a.m. on Feb. 7 in the area of 15th Street West and Lewis Avenue and found a battered woman who said her boyfriend had assaulted her.

The woman said they had been drinking earlier in the night and that she was driving Breshears, her boyfriend of five years, home when he started choking and punching her for no apparent reason, court documents say.

She said she got out of the vehicle and that Breshears chased her and punched her in the face several more times before driving away, an affidavit states.

Officers found the vehicle stuck in a snowbank along 15th Street West and arrested Breshears.

District Judge Michael G. Moses scheduled Breshears for sentencing on Nov. 7.
