Unfortunately for Bozung, that perception is only going to get worse after the pro snowboarder was arrested in Park City on Saturday morning after allegedly threatening two people, one with a knife and one with a rifle reports The Salt Lake Tribune.
Police statements indicate that a crew of people had been out partying at a nearby bar before returning to Bozung’s home in the early morning hours on Saturday. At some point after the group returned, Bozung got worked up and grabbed a kitchen knife and held it to one bystander’s throat.
After that grisly interaction, most people left the house immediately but Bozung wasn’t done. He then headed to his car to grab ammo for his AR-15 style firearm.

Although charges have yet to be filed, the 36 year-old rider was taken into custody for marijuana possession, aggravated assault, and unlawful possession of a firearm. He was released on bail from the Summit County jail on Monday.
