BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A 49-year-old Texas man and his 24-year-old son face felony assault charges after being accused of drawing knives as the son tried to re-enter a Montana strip club after hours to get a dancer's phone number.

The Billings Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/16eaVep ) Jose Angel Lopez Sr. and Jose Angel Lopez Jr., both of Corpus Christi, Texas, were charged Monday in Yellowstone County Justice Court with two counts of felony assault with a weapon. Bail was set at $75,000 for the father and $50,000 for the son. They are scheduled to enter pleas in District Court on May 17.

Prosecutors allege Lopez Jr. pulled a knife and slashed at a bouncer who wouldn't let him back into Planet Lockwood early Monday, and that Lopez Sr. slashed at the bartender who punched his son several times.
