A Morgantown man accused of making terroristic threats to an off duty police officer was arraigned Tuesday.
James Hunt pleaded not-guilty in circuit court to making terroristic threats, carrying a deadly weapon without a license, possession of a controlled substance and obstructing an officer.
In August, the Monongalia County Sheriff's Department found Hunt passed out in his vehicle along Interstate 79.
Deputies woke Hunt and removed him from his car. He resisted and managed to locate a loaded handgun.
Deputies said Hunt threatened to "take care" of them and said to one of them that he better "always have a gun" and "watch his back."
During the arrest, deputies also found drugs on Hunt.
