Bar patrons use duct tape to hold man accused of trying to hit bartender

HAMILTON, Mont. (AP) -- It was a citizens' arrest with the handyman's best friend -- duct tape.

Authorities report a Montana man was taped-up by fellow bar patrons, after they say he tried to hit a bartender.

Jeremy A. Estep was busted in front of the Rustic Hut in Florence, Montana. According to court records, Estep was kicked out of the place.

Witnesses say he returned, began arguing with the bartender and tried hitting him with a glass.

A female bartender told officers she grabbed his arm and other customers took him to the ground and duct-taped his wrists.

The Ravalli Republic reports Estep now faces a number of charges, including felony assault.
