A Stevensville man out on bail while awaiting sentencing on a felony charge of domestic assault is back in jail after being arrested for possession of methamphetamine and marijuana.

Patrick Terry Flowers, 60, pleaded guilty earlier this month to felony partner or family member assault as part of a plea agreement that dropped felony charges of stalking and accountability for theft.

On Tuesday, the Ravalli County Attorney’s Office filed papers saying that plea agreement is off the table following Flower’s most recent arrest.

Flowers is scheduled to be sentenced on the assault charge Feb. 18.

Flowers was arrested Dec. 22 following a traffic stop near Stevensville.

During the stop, a sheriff’s deputy asked Flowers for permission to search his vehicle. Flowers consented and then asked if he could retrieve a sweatshirt from the pickup truck.

When Flowers reached into the back seat, a small glass pipe of a type commonly used to smoke methamphetamine fell from the truck to the ground, court records said.

The deputy allegedly found 6.65 grams of marijuana and a marijuana pipe under the seat.

Leslie Evajay Hill, 34, was a passenger in the vehicle, and a search of her purse allegedly found a vial containing methamphetamine.

Flowers and Hill appeared Tuesday before Ravalli County Justice of the Peace Jim Bailey.

Both were charged with felony criminal possession of dangerous drugs and misdemeanor counts of criminal possession of dangerous drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Bailey set bail for Flowers at $300,000.

At the time of the arrest, Hill was also out on bail on felony drug charges stemming from an arrest in August. Hill’s bail was set at $50,000.
