WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - A Watertown man is accused of threatening people at the Jefferson County Public Safety Building early Monday morning.

Deputies say he refused to leave and tried to enter a restricted area through a locked door.

Youmans was charged with making a terroristic threat, second-degree obstructing governmental administration, third-degree criminal trespassing, and disorderly conduct.

He was arraigned and jailed on $500 bail.
