SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A man is accused of opening fire on a group of hunters with a high-powered rifle in central Utah.

Utah County Sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Spencer Cannon told Salt Lake City's KSL-TV ( that 32-year-old Jentry Joyner was booked Friday on charges of aggravated assault and drug use.

According to Cannon, the incident unfolded Thursday night in Diamond Fork Canyon.

He says the archery deer hunters were hunting on public property when Joyner got into a fight with them and started shooting.

No one was injured.

Cannon says deputies later determined that Joyner was under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

Deputies say the hunters responded correctly by leaving the area and calling 911.

It was not immediately clear Saturday if Joyner had an attorney.
