An Anchorage man was arrested on OUI and assault charges after he pointed a gun at his girlfriend, then proceeded to drive drunk Tuesday afternoon, authorities say. 

Police say just after 2 p.m., officers responded to reports of an intoxicated man who pointed a handgun at his girlfriend at Centennial Campground located at 8400 Starview Drive. 

According to witnesses, the woman was "sometimes clothed and sometimes naked." They also said they could see visible bruises. 

Just before police arrived, the couple left the campground in a Dodge sedan. However, an off-duty officer spotted the car at Muldoon Road and Peck Avenue. The officer pulled them over and removed both of them from a Dodge sedan. 

The driver, Roy C. Clayton III, 37, was given a field sobriety test. Police say a handgun was found on the driver's seat after Clayton exited the car. 

The woman who was clothed was uncooperative and began making suicidal threats once she realized he was going to jail, police said. She was taken to the hospital for treatment because of those threats. 

Clayton was arrested and charged with assault in the third-degree, felony OUI (three or more offenses in 10 years), misconduct involving a weapon in the fourth-degree and violation of conditions of release.
