BILLINGS, Mont. -

A 49-year-old Texas man and his 24-year-old son face felony assault charges after being accused of drawing knives as the son tried to re-enter a Montana strip club after hours to get a dancer's phone number.
    
Jose Angel Lopez Sr. and Jose Angel Lopez Jr., both of Corpus Christi, Texas, were charged Monday in Yellowstone County Justice Court with two counts of felony assault with a weapon. Bail was set at $75,000 for the father and $50,000 for the son. They are scheduled to enter pleas in District Court on May 17.
    
Prosecutors allege Lopez Jr. pulled a knife and slashed at a bouncer who wouldn't let him back into Planet Lockwood early Monday, and that Lopez Sr. slashed at the bartender who punched his son several times.
