Man gets 5 months for bear spray assault
Tuesday, April 8, 2008
KODIAK, Alaska -- A Kodiak man will spend five months in jail for twice attacking bar customers with bear spray. At his sentencing, Daniel Pement read an apology he sent to bar patrons. In it, he says the separate incidents on Feb. 9 and 10 at the B&B Bar were fueled by his alcohol consumption.
On Feb. 9, he was escorted from the bar after accusing a bartender of taking $5 from him. Pement returned 15 minutes later and sprayed customers with the bear spray.
Police talked to him later that night and confiscated the bear spray.
On the following day, police arrested him after responding again to the bar, where Pement returned and sprayed patrons with another can of bear spray.
