One man hit a Jefferson bar patron in the head with a beer bottle and another threatened to kill him and a companion before hitting their car at two separate intersections, authorities said.

Geidi Munoz-Gonzales, 26, of Stockholm, wielded a knife while threatening to kill the victim and his companion after Ryan McCabe, 24,of Franklin, hit him with the bottle at Daily Planet on Feb. 16, Sgt. Joseph Kratzel said.

The 25-year-old victim, who was cut on his forehead, left the bar with his friend, 28 but was followed by Munoz-Gonzales and McCabe, Kratzel said.

The pair then rammed their car into the victim’s, the sergeant said -- -- once at the intersection of Roosevelt and Holland Mountain Road and then again at Holland Mountain Road and Ridge Road.

It was unclear what prompted the attack.

Both McCabe and Munoz-Gonzales were sent to the Morris County Correction Facility pending a hearing in Central Judicial Processing Court in Morristown.

They’re charged with aggravated assault, unlawful weapon possession, terroristic threats, disorderly conduct and assault by auto. Police also issued several traffic summonses.

The victims were treated for their injuries, the sergeant said.

Kratzel did not know how the fight started or if the victims were released from jail.
