COLLEGE STATION, TX (KXXV) -

A Bryan man was in jail Saturday morning after police said he tried opening the door of a patrol car and then threatened to harm an officer after police arrested him.

Officers with the College Station Police Department were leaving a loud party call at The Retreat apartments on Jones Butler Drive about 1 a.m. Saturday when they said they noticed a man trying to open the passenger door of one of their patrol cars.

The man then walked to the other side of the patrol car and tried to open the driver's door, Cpl. Gary Southerland said. Officers walked toward the man and ordered him to stop.

When the officers asked him why he was trying the car's handles, the man told them he "wasn't planning on stealing it because that would be illegal," Southerland said.

The officers realized the man was drunk and arrested him for his own safety and the safety of others, Southerland said. 

As the man was being taken to jail, Southerland said the man made threatening statements toward the arresting officer.

"A couple of the statements made by the suspect include 'Thank God I have a shotgun at home' and that he would kill the police officer as soon as he 'took off your badge,'" Southerland said.

Police identified the man as 19-year-old Andrew Nesbitt.

Nesbitt was charged with public intoxication and retaliation. His bond was set at $9,000.
