Man puts gun to his head, demands to see BPD chief


A Beaumont man has been indicted after entering the Beaumont police station lobby brandishing a semi-automatic pistol.

Andrew Bradderson Savoy, 31, was indicted by a Jefferson County grand jury March 13 for making a terroristic threat, a third degree felony.

According to a probable cause affidavit obtained by The Examiner, Savoy entered the Beaumont police station lobby on Feb. 25 about 4:30 p.m., approached the glass separating employees from the lobby and produced a handgun from his person. The witness stated that Savoy then pointed the handgun to his head while beating on the glass and yelling.

Numerous detectives and other officers immediately tackled Savoy and separated him from what police said in the affidavit was a “fully loaded Hi-Point model C9 9mm semi-automatic handgun.”

According to an investigative summary obtained by The Examiner, Savoy not only pointed the handgun at an employee behind the glass, but pointed it at his own head and demanded to see the chief of police.

Savoy was arrested Feb. 25 and posted a $15,000 bond three days later. He is set to appear in Judge Lindsey Scott’s court April 28.
