Another officer spoke with staff at the business who said that Bozman was requested to leave the property. The manager offered to help move his belongings from the business property. This is when Bozman pulled a knife and threatened the manager, saying that he was going to kill him if he touched his things, the court paperwork said.
A photo of Bozman was provided from the neck down showing he was holding a knife. Bozman was arrested and taken to the jail where officers found a smoking device with a residue that was tested positive for methamphetamine.
