Updated:

PALM COAST, Fla. - A man was arrested Saturday night after deputies said he walked into a bar dressed as Rambo, armed with an Uzi-style assault rifle and two hunting knives.

A deputy said Daniel Noble, 37, was drinking at the Europa Lounge in Palm Coast and left the bar earlier in the evening.

They said when he returned to the bar around 11:30 p.m., he was armed and very combative.

Two customers, Vassili Mironov and Roman Dubinsechi, sprang into action, and grabbed the barrel of the rifle and pointed it downward, but not before one or two shots were fired into the ground.

No one was hurt and the two men continued to try to disarm Noble, who grabbed his hunting knife and lashed at the two men.

Reports said the men wrestled with noble who was then taken to the ground and became unconscious.

Mironov was stabbed near his eye and was taken to Halifax Hospital; he was later released.

Dubinsechi received minor injuries and was treated at the scene.

Noble was charged with attempted murder, two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and two counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

He is being held in jail without bond.
