Fayette Man Appears in Court Following CMU Campus Lockdown
FAYETTE -A 21-year-old Fayette man was charged on Wednesday in connection with a campus lockdown of Central Methodist University last Thursday.
The Fayette Police Department arrested Brian M. Baxter late Tuesday. Baxter is charged with a class D felony of making a terrorist threat.
A Howard County Circuit Court document said Baxter, "knowingly caused a false belief or fear that an incident involving danger to live had occurred by placing a call to Howard County Central Dispatch indicating there was an armed man walking toward Burford Hall on Central Methodist University Campus."
