Great Falls Police Car - Vault

GREAT FALLS, Mont. - A woman found naked by sheriff’s deputies reported a man told her he was a police officer and threatened her to get her to have sex with him.

Early in the morning on Jan. 18, Cascade County Sheriff’s deputies located a naked woman and a man, identified as Rudy Aremando Rodriguez, around Giant Springs Road.

The Great Falls Police Department reports law enforcement was responding to what appeared to be a serious crash.

Both individuals were taken to Benefis for evaluations.

Charging documents say Great Falls police officers spoke with the woman who said she contacted Rodriguez asking for a ride to her father’s house, and that he took her to a gas station instead and bought two bottles of Fireball Whiskey.

The woman reported Rodriguez made her consume the whiskey before taking her to the pullout at Giant Springs and parking.

Rodriguez then told the woman he was a police officer with the Great Falls Police Department, and that he would get her in trouble with his superiors unless she agreed to have sex with him.

During the incident, Rodriguez told the woman multiple times that he was a police officer, and the woman reported she was afraid of him and believed she would be arrested if she did not comply.

After the incident, the woman said she put Rodriguez’s truck in reverse and drove it off the road into the coulee, crashing it, before getting out without clothes and hiking up to the roadway where she was found by deputies.

Rodriguez told law enforcement he and the woman had consensual sex, and claimed that while he was outside of the truck, the woman tried to run him over.

Documents note that Rodriguez is not a police officer, and that he has an active warrant out of Texas for possession of marijuana from 2018. Rodriguez was also previously charged with illegal entry in 2009.

GFPD also mentioned a report from Jan. 12 of Rodriguez following an underage girl who was driving on 10th Ave. South. Rodriguez has not been charged in this incident; however, the Great Falls Attorney's Office was forwarded the case to review.

Rudy Aremando Rodriguez is charged with two counts of sexual intercourse without consent and impersonation of a public servant. His bond has been requested in the amount of $100,000.
