NHTI student arrested for threatening staff
A student at NHTI was arrested last week after threatening campus personnel and trying to headbutt a state trooper.
Lt. Gregory Ferry said 19-year-old Scott Andrews was apprehended at about 10:40 p.m. last Wednesday after witnesses reported he threatened housing staff, yelled uncontrollably and assaulted a security guard. Troopers Sean Sweeney and Irwin Malilay made the arrest, during which Andrews tried to headbutt one of them.
Andrews was charged with simple assault, disorderly conduct and three counts of criminal threatening, Ferry said. He was held overnight
on $5,000 cash bail, which
was posted the following morning. Ferry said he did not have the exact date of Andrews’s arraignement, but expected it would be in late May.
