HYDABURG, Alaska (AP) - A southeast Alaska man has been charged with felony assault after a dispute at a home in the village of Hydaburg.

Alaska State Troopers say 51-year-old Richard Carle was highly intoxicated when he got into an argument with family members, who pushed him out of the house.

Troopers say Carle used a splitting maul to smash the door and threatened to kill the people inside.

A village public safety officer used pepper spray to arrest Carle.

Troopers say Carle spit on the officer and broke out a partition in his patrol car.

Carle also is charged with counts of criminal mischief and harassment.

Carle remains jailed at Lemon Creek Correctional Center in Juneau.

He is represented by the Alaska Public Defender Agency, which does not comment on pending cases.
