FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) – Alaska State Troopers say a man who is accused of pointing a loaded gun at his girlfriend last week after she rejected his marriage proposal has been charged with felony assault.


The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports that the man’s girlfriend of three years told troopers he became enraged when she turned him down, so he racked the slide on his loaded pistol and pointed it at her.


The woman told troopers she ran out the back door of the Fireweed Roadhouse, in the Nenana area, and hid in bushes before a friend found her. A passing motorist picked them up.


Court records show the 25-year-old man told troopers he was drinking and couldn’t remember anything that happened. He was charged with felony third-degree assault, misdemeanor fourth-degree weapons misconduct and misdemeanor fourth-degree criminal mischief.
