New security measures in place at Weaver city hall

WEAVER, AL (WBRC) -

City officials in Weaver say new security measures are now in place at city hall.

All this after a man was arrested after showing up with a gun and handcuffs demanding to arrest the city's mayor a few weeks back.

Investigators later said the man claimed he was ready to shoot the mayor if he didn't go peacefully. The mayor wasn't in city hall at the time.

City officials have since installed a new wall with thick windows in the front office.

They've also installed call boxes and have provided portable alarm buttons for various city workers at city hall and at the nearby community center.

Bobby Beck was arrested in the incident and his case is expected to go before a grand jury.
