SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A 36-year-old man has been arrested in an alleged hatchet attack at a bus stop in southeast Salt Lake City.

Police say two men were waiting for a bus on South Highland Drive at about 5 p.m. Monday when an argument broke out over whether the suspect was too drunk to board the Utah Transit Authority bus.

Det. Robert Ungricht told The Salt Lake Tribune Tuesday (https://tinyurl.com/h35s6jd) the suspect then charged the other man with the hatchet. The victim was able to avoid being hit and wrestled the weapon away.

The suspect’s name hasn’t been released. He was booked on suspicion of aggravated assault, disorderly conduct, public intoxication and carrying and attempting to use a dangerous weapon in a fight.

He’s also was wanted on outstanding warrants for past DUI, assault and traffic violations.
