Helm Hearing

Richard Helm was a transient from California who allegedly broke into an empty house in February of this year.

When law enforcement arrived, they say he started to point a gun at a Highway Patrolman inside the house and was shot in the arm.

Helm faces assault and armed criminal action charges in the case.

At yesterday's preliminary hearing a 60 day mental health evaluation was ordered for Helm, who's set to appear in court again in the fall.
