A Missoula man wanted for partner assault is in jail again after police allegedly found him in possession of more than 6 grams of methamphetamine and a propane bottle.
Aaron Simmons, 30, was arrested Saturday after Missoula police ran his license plates and discovered he had an active warrant for a partner assault. During his arrest, police found several baggies containing a crystalline substance.
According to the affidavit, when Officer Rebekah Potter asked Simmons what the substance was, he responded, "What does it look like?"
When asked what was in his backpack, Simmons said another one, but declined to give the arresting officers permission to search the bag.

According to the affidavit, Simmons did, however, admit to using methamphetamine.
Officer Brandon O'Dell took the alleged drugs and the backpack to the police station where the substance tested positive for methamphetamine.
Through a large rip in the backpack, he also saw a black and silver propane tank.
Simmons' bail was set at $10,000 in Missoula County Justice Court on Monday afternoon.
