Police: Man faces felony after throwing book bag on postal vehicle

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A man who scared a postal worker Thursday morning is behind bars facing serious charges, according to police.

The Baton Rouge Police Department reported Patrick McAdams, 46, approached the mail carrier around 10 a.m. while she was on her route.

"You need to call the sheriff's because they need to see what's in this bag," an affidavit stated McAdams said to the mail carrier.

According to the document, he then threw a large book bag on top of the postal vehicle.

The worker ran away and called police out of fear because she didn't know what was in the bag. According to reports, there was nothing dangerous inside the bag.

McAdams was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on a charge of terrorizing.

His bond is set at $50,000.
