BEND, OR -- A tourist from Otis, Oregon was arrested Thursday night for allegedly threatening another guest at the Seventh Mountain Resort. A child called 911, just after 8 p.m., to report his father was fighting with a man with a gun. Their location was determined by dispatchers, based on the phone's GPS.

Deputies say 36-year-old Dustin Shippee was upset about the noise coming from the vacation apartment above his room. He allegedly confronted Michael Spencer, of Portland; verbally, at first. They say he then grabbed a pistol from his room and returned to confront the man a second time. The two struggled on the balcony, causing the gun to fall to the ground.  No shots were fired, although Spencer sustained minor injuries in the scuffle. 


When Deputies arrived, Shippee was retreating to his own vacation apartment. He complied with law enforcement commands to come out, and was arrested without incident. He's charged with Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Menacing, Reckless Endangerment, Assault IV and Disorderly Conduct.


Alcohol is believed to have been a factor in the incident.
