The district attorney’s office alleges that Munkirs was in court for a hearing regarding a charge for threatening an act of violence around 3:30 on Monday afternoon.  Munkirs was arrested after officers pulled over his 1993 Chevy pickup around 6 p.m. Officers recovered an open bottle of bourbon from the vehicle. Munkirs blood alcohol content measured .18 at the time.

Bond was set at $7,500. Munkirs is due back in court on August 14.
