Man pleads no contest to shovel assault in Woodside

Milo Mcintosh Imrie, a 25-year-old military veteran, pleaded no-contest May 16 to felony assault charges in connection with an incident in Woodside in December 2011, when he allegedly assaulted his cousin with a shovel.

Mr. Imrie will be sentenced to no more than six months in San Mateo County jail, prosecutors said.

The Woodside incident began when Mr. Imrie threatened to kill his 22-year-old cousin and himself, either with a knife or by dousing them both with gasoline and igniting it, prosecutors said.

The cousin took a gasoline can from Mr. Imrie and took knives from the kitchen and threw them up on to the roof. But while his back was turned, Mr. Imrie allegedly hit him on the back with the shovel, and then fled.

Deputies found him at the Menlo Country Club on Woodside Road, where he was taken into custody after resisting arrest, prosecutors said.

Mr. Imrie agreed to a plea bargain with the condition that he not spend time in state prison, according to District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe. He remains out of custody on $25,000 bail. Sentencing is set for July 1.
