HELENA- A Helena suspect is accused of threatening a group of people with a handgun over the weekend.
Clayton T. Grewell has been charged with Felony Assault with a weapon.
Charging documents say a victim in the case contacted law enforcement about threatening messages she allegedly received from Grewell on Facebook.
While speaking with law enforcement officers, the victim spoke about a confrontation that allegedly took place at the Valley Hub Bar Saturday night.
During an argument at the bar, Grewell allegedly asked the victim and a group of other individuals if they’d like to quote, “take the fight outside.”
Grewell then allegedly got into his truck and pointed a handgun at the victim others before he drove away.
When interviewed by law officers, Grewell allegedly said the gun was an air-soft pistol, saying the group of people was threatening him.
Once he was arrested, charging documents say Grewell told law officers he had lied about using an air-soft gun. He said the weapon was actually a 9-millimeter handgun.
Bond in the case has been set at $10,000.00.
Grewell will be arraigned in District Court later this month.
