Teen accused of fighting with brass knuckles accepts plea deal

Mar. 5—A 19-year-old accused of attacking a teen with brass knuckles at a party in September pleaded guilty last month to misdemeanor endangerment.

Prosecutors initially charged Daisy Hope Crothers with an assault with a weapon charge, but amended it after she reached a plea deal on Feb. 8. She pleaded guilty that same day before Judge Dan Wilson in Flathead County District Court.

Under the terms of the agreement, prosecutors are expected to recommend Crothers receive a three-year deferred sentence. Wilson set sentencing for April 11.

Authorities began investigating the fight after a parent reported his daughter was attacked at the party, court documents show. At the same time, an anonymous caller told investigators about multiple fights at the meeting, with some participants wielding brass knuckles and others threatening to get guns, according to court documents.

Flathead County Sheriff’s Office deputies reviewed video of the fight posted online and saw Crothers allegedly lunging at an injured teen with brass knuckles.

According to court documents, the victim suffered multiple lacerations to the face.

Another teen who was caught on camera kicking and punching the victim was charged with assault in Flathead County District Court.
