A Billings woman was accused on Monday of putting a gun to her boyfriend's head after she became upset that she couldn't get any marijuana.
Victoria Eva Menchaca, 29, appeared in Yellowstone County Justice Court by video from the county jail, where Judge David Carter charged her with felony assault with a weapon and misdemeanor partner or family member abuse.
Carter ordered her to appear in District Court on July 28 and set bond at $5,000 after a county prosecutor expressed concern that she might flee to Texas and that she has a 2005 misdemeanor conviction of making terroristic threats, as well as convictions in 2007, 2010 and 2013 for drug possession.
Charging documents state that Menchaca's boyfriend told a county sheriff's deputy that she became upset early on Friday that she couldn't secure any marijuana.
The boyfriend went on to say that he tried to leave their house in Lockwood when she began yelling at him but that Menchaca grabbed him by the throat and forced him onto the couch, according to the affidavit.
Menchaca then grabbed a loaded Taurus .38-caliber revolver from her boyfriend's shorts' pocket and pressed it against his head, the court documents state.
The boyfriend pushed Menchaca away and ran to a nearby gas station, where an employee called police.
