Authorities in Montana say a drunken man pulled a knife on his hunting partner who turned down his liquor-fueled advances.
The Smoking Gun reports that police responded to a call about an intoxicated man refusing to leave a Hamilton, Mont. home on Sunday evening. A deputy with the Ravalli County Sheriff’s Office spoke with homeowner Mike Smith, who explained that he and Robert Saunders had spent the entire day drinking and hunting. However, by the time they returned to Smith's home, the liquor had gotten to Saunders:
Saunders, Smith reported, would grab him around the neck and push up against his body while grabbing his own groin and saying, You know what this is about. Smith told the deputy that he felt intimidated by Sauders and that it was a sexual situation.
When Saunders reportedly brandished a knife, Smith said he did the same out of fear. Saunders dropped the knife, giving Smith time to push him out of his home through the garage, locking the door behind him.
Saunders, whose blood-alcohol level was nearly four times the legal limit, was too drunk to be questioned. He was eventually charged with assault with a weapon.
