Police Recruit Accused of Criminal Threatening To Undergo Mental Health Evaluation
A man accused of threatening violence at the New Hampshire Police Academy graduation has been sent to Concord Hospital for a mental health evaluation.
According to court documents, fellow classmates say 24-year-old Laconia Police Department recruit Noah Beaulieu talked about bringing 30-round magazines of ammunition and shooting those attending the academy graduation scheduled for Friday.
Attorney Mark Sisti is representing Beaulieu. He said his client has no criminal record or mental health history.
"We can be very clear on the bottom line, and that is that what he has been charged with is way out of line,” Sisti said “He had no intention whatsoever to harm anybody, terrorize anybody, shoot anybody up, anything like that."
Sisti said his client was honorably discharged after three years in the military.
A bail hearing is expected to take place Friday morning.
