MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - A 22-year-old man faces two felony counts of

terrorizing during a disturbance at a party this week in Mandan.

Police say William Christensen was intoxicated when he got into

a fight with his girlfriend. When others tried to intervene,

Christensen bit one man's thumb and chin.

Court papers say Christensen picked up a rifle, chased people

with it and threatened to kill them. He also used a bayonet mounted

on top of the rifle to stab at a doorway that one woman was hiding

behind.

Police found the unloaded rifle beside a doorway.

Christensen was arrested at his apartment.

If convicted, Christensen could be sentenced to 10 years in

prison and $10,000 in fines.

He also faces one misdemeanor count of simple assault.
