But according to the complaint, after he honked his horn, a man who appeared to be 18-20 years old, emerged from the building. When the man, identified later as Robert Scott Myer, 18, of Farmington, was asked to move his car, he refused and engaged got in a fight with the driver. Meyer’s girlfriend reportedly told him to stop and he did, but then Meyer walked back to the building where someone gave him a knife. That man was Andrew Douglas Jensen, 27 of Farmington. After getting the knife, Meyer chased the driver down and attacked him until his girlfriend again convinced him to stop. When Meyer was walking back to the building for the second time he struck the man’s car with the knife, denting the car. The girlfriend of the driver and the man’s infant child were in the car when Meyer hit it.
