Vet with PTSD takes assault plea deal
May 17, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Milo Imrie

A 25-year-old Woodside military veteran who spent a stretch in a state mental hospital after his arrest for assaulting his cousin with a shovel accepted a plea deal Friday that leaves him facing up to six months in jail.

Milo McIntosh Imrie pleaded no contest to felony assault and will be sentenced July 1. At the hearing, a judge can also consider imposing less than six months jail and reducing the felony to a misdemeanor.

Imrie was arrested Dec. 12, 2012, after threatening his 22-year-old cousin with a gasoline can and claims he planned to kill him and himself through either fire or the use of a knife. The cousin took a butcher block of knives from the kitchen and threw it on the roof but, when his back was turned, Imrie struck him in the back with the shovel and fled, according to prosecutors.

Deputies found Imrie at the nearby Menlo Country Club on Woodside Road where he reportedly resisted arrest and tried grabbing the gun. He was placed on a psychiatric hold but, while being transported to jail the next day, he ran from the patrol car when its door was open.

Before he could be tried, Imrie’s was declared incompetent and sent to Napa State Hospital. Competency is a person’s ability to aid in one’s own defense while sanity is his or her mental state at the time of an alleged crime. Imrie returned to San Mateo County last August after doctors found him fit again and pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.
