Troopers say that an ax and rifle wielding Emmonak man was arrested on assault and weapons charges on Monday in that community.
Troopers in Emmonak responded to a residence in that community after receiving a report of a man with an ax threatening people. When troopers responded to the scene, they found a man they identified as 25-year-old Gunner Gregory, armed with a rifle. Troopers were able to coax Gregory into dropping the rifle.
The investigation at the scene, found that an inebriated Gregory gott into a fight with another man at Gregory’s residence, then threatened the man with an ax outside the residence. After that, Gregory armed himself with a rifle.
He was placed under arrest on Assault III and Misconduct Involving Weapons IV charges.
Gregory was jailed at the Emmonak Police Department to await arraignment.
