WASILLA, Alaska (AP) - A dispute over a gun led to a stabbing Friday at a campsite near Wasilla.

Alaska State Troopers say 27-year-old Joseph Larocque is being held on suspicion of assault and weapons misconduct.

Troopers took a call on the stabbing just before 4 a.m. after the incident at Mile 16 Point Mackenzie Road.

Witnesses told troopers Larocque was drunk and holding a gun.

Troopers say that when 39-year-old Nathan Buck of Palmer took the gun away, Larocque stabbed him with a knife.

Buck was treated and released at the campsite.

Larocque is being held on $5,000 bail and Mat-Su Pre-Trial Facility in Palmer.
