POSSESSION OF A DEADLY WEAPON
EVAN Q. BYRAM, 37, has been charged in Circuit Court with possession of a deadly weapon with unlawful intent, a felony, and misdemeanor counts of interference with a peace officer and breach of peace. He had made some threatening remarks Sept. 7 about a man he thought was making advances toward his wife. Byram was wearing a 9 mm pistol and had been drinking when he left his home and it was feared he intended to harm the man. But then he returned back home, followed by sheriff’s deputies and other law enforcement, who worried about those inside being in danger. At one point, Byram allegedly stepped to the doorway and began shouting and cursing at officers and yelled at them to shoot him, but he refused to leave the home. His gun was later found in his vehicle, according to court documents. He said he had no plans to harm to other man.
