A Bryan man accused of vandalizing the KBTX television station and threatening several employees is now behind bars.

Police say Jason Bewley, 37, was arrested around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday evening at a bar off of Highway 21 and Marino Road in Brazos County.

Police say a bar patron recognized Bewley and called police. He was arrested without incident.

Bewley is charged with felony criminal mischief and his bond is set at $10,000.

Police say Bewley showed up at KBTX about 7:15 p.m. Tuesday evening.

Bewley allegedly verbally harassed several KBTX employees in the parking lot. No one was injured, but two personal vehicles were damaged.

Police say he then threw a cinder block at the front window of the KBTX live van and station's back door window, breaking both.

News Three has also learned that Bewley allegedly caused a minor disturbance in The Eagle newsroom Tuesday afternoon and at the Brazos County District Attorney's Office.
