Woman holds man at gunpoint

A Butte woman who lives in the 1900 block of Florence Avenue came home around 7 p.m. Friday to find her front door ajar and a man she had never seen before sleeping on her couch.

Holding the man at gun point, she called police and they arrived at her residence.

Officers arrested Michael Jacob Berberick, 36, of Billings, who told police he had no idea how he got to Butte and thought he was still in Billings.

Berberick also had a pistol in his possession, along with a set of brass knuckles.

He was transported to the Butte Detention Center and jailed on suspicion of felony parole violation, misdemeanor possession of a concealed weapon and misdemeanor criminal trespass to property.
