FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - A 38-year-old Fairbanks man is in jail after troopers say he threatened his ex-girlfriend with a samurai sword before driving drunk and rolling his vehicle.

The Fairbanks Daily News Miner reports ( ) that the man faces several charges, including felony assault.

Alaska State Troopers say the man was drinking with his ex-girlfriend early Thursday morning and became angry when she said she had sex with another man.

The ex-girlfriend told troopers the man ripped shelves from the wall and threw them at her while yelling derogatory remarks. She says he then strangled her and grabbed a samurai sword from the wall and held it over her as though he were going to attack.

Charging documents say troopers found the sword, the victim’s computer and an open alcohol container in the man’s rolled car.
