Edward Leroy Widner, 18, of North Dakota, appeared Monday in Justice Court after being charged with felony assault with a weapon.
His bond was set at $20,000.
According to court documents, Widner was drinking with companions at a Billings hotel Sunday night and got into a fight with another man in the room. The victim alleged that Widner punched him several times and struck him on the head with the hotel room clothes iron and a bottle of liquor.
After searching two rooms at the hotel, police found Widner passed out on the landscaping rocks in front of the building and arrested him.
