BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - The son of a man who drowned while ice fishing on Fort Peck Lake in January is charged with confronting his father’s fishing buddy and threatening to kill him.

The Billings Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1gz4D9T ) 25-year-old Tyler Daniel Gilstrap made an initial appearance in Justice Court Tuesday on charges of assault with a weapon and attempted kidnapping. Bail was set at $25,000.

Charging documents say the victim reported Gilstrap showed up at his home on April 11 and asked him about how his father died. The man said he was telling Gilstrap the story when Gilstrap called him a liar and pointed the gun at his head.

The man told investigators Gilstrap forced him outside and told him to get in the back of his pickup truck, saying “this is where you’re gonna die.”
