A 53-year-old Brashear man has been accused of making a terroristic threat toward a family member while in custody at Hopkins County jail, according to arrest reports.

The Brashear man has been in the county jail since his arrest on Oct. 26 on a violation of parole warrant and a charge of terroristic threat to a family or household member, according to jail reports.

On Saturday, Nov. 9, the man reportedly had a contact visit with his elderly father. During their conversation, the Brashear man allegedly “made comments when he got out of prison he was going to come back and cut his father and brothers’ heads off,” sheriff’s deputies noted in arrest reports.

The Brashear man was charged Sunday morning, Nov. 17, with an additional Class A misdemeanor terroristic threat of a family or household member. Hopkins County sheriff’s deputies also served the man with a a criminal trespass warning, which would prohibit him from entering his father’s property if released from custody, according to sheriff’s reports.

He was held in the county jail Monday morning, Nov. 18, on the violation of parole charge; his bond on the first terroristic threat charge was set at $10,000, according to jail reports.
