I was driving my boyfriend home to his parents after a holiday party. It was a really long drive and he passed out and I couldn't get him to wake up so I went to get his Dad to carry him per his Mom's suggestion.
he woke up confused and took off in his truck.
We were in the back woods. When I got to a bridge I had to cross that is only wide enough for one vehicle. He was parked on it and started driving towards me. Knowing he was drunk I was scared and threw my Jeep into reverse until I ran it into a ditch.
He he then came up to my vehicle demanding I open the door but I wouldn't because I was scared. He was acting erratically and I had no idea what he wanted or was upset about.
When I wouldn't open the door he went to his truck, got a hunting rifle and broke open my passenger window then got in he car and just hugged me. As you can imagine someone called the police and they got there really quickly. They asked me if I wanted to press charges and I said no but my parents found out and are really pissed.
He he has never acted this way before but the fact that he used a weapon to break in and was drunk they don't want me around him.
Should I be concerned because he used a rifle even though he wasn't using it as a fire arm?

I'd be willing to bet a lot of hoplophobes are going to come on here and try to make this a gun thing when it's really not. What it boils down to is two instances of assault. First when he ran his car at you, a lot of people forget that is assault with a deadly weapon. He could have killed you right there. Second is obviously the rifle. Since it was the butt, he could have just as easily used, say, a baseball bat or a tire iron. You should have been in fear for your life with either weapon. He is an erratic, violent drunk. Very violent, I'd say. He's damn lucky you were either kindhearted enough or dumb enough to not press charges, he should be going to jail for that little rampage. I keep staring in disbelief at your last question. You do know that he still could have killed or seriously wounded you with the butt of that rifle, right? If you had a CCW, to me it would seem justifiable for you to have shot him as you feared for your life. I think you know what your should do if your boyfriend put you in fear of your life.1
