VALLEY CITY, N.D. (Valley News Live) - One man is facing a felony charge for an incident involving several guns outside a Valley City Bar.

Court documents say in the early morning hours of Tuesday, June 6, they were called to Boomer’s Corner Keg for a man outside with multiple guns.

Records say when officers approached, they found 40-year-old Toby Mougey across the street with an AR style rifle laying on the concrete to the left of him. Officers then ordered Mougey to put his hands up and turn around. Documents say Mougey put his arms up, but refused to turn around. He was eventually put in handcuffs by police.

Court papers say when they searched Mougey, they found two loaded pistols in holsters on him and he was wearing a tactical vest with 10 extra magazines for the rifle. When officers searched the rifle on the ground, they found a 60 round magazine loaded in the gun.

Once Mougey was safely restrained, officers talked to people in the nearby bar, which was since locked. Records show one man left the bar and saw Mougey sitting on the sidewalk across the street and went up to him. That’s when records say Mougey picked up his gun and started yelling at the person. That person told police they feared for their life in that moment.

When officers spoke to bar staff, they said Mougey was previously kicked out of the bar and they called police when they saw him outside with a gun, according to charging papers.

Records show when officers were talking to Mougey, they noticed a strong smell of alcohol, watery, red eyes and slurred speech. A test showed his alcohol level at .187 when he was in jail.

Papers say when officers later searched Mougey’s vehicle, they found several guns in the pickup and an open beer bottle in the front seat.

A check of records shows Mougey does not have a concealed weapons license.

Mougey is facing a felony charge of terrorizing and a misdemeanor charge of carrying a concealed weapon.
