LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Shallowater man was in jail Wednesday night, charged with bringing a gun into a Lubbock hospital. Police arrested Brian Stevenson, 34, Wednesday morning. He's charged with unlawfully carrying weapons and public intoxication.

Police tell NewsChannel 11 a staff member at Covenant Specialty Hospital called them just after 7 a.m. Wednesday. Authorities say Stevenson's mother is staying at the hospital and that he was intoxicated, saying no one was going to take his mother out of the hospital. That's when staff noticed a handgun in his waistband.

We spoke with hospital administration, and they tell us that Stevenson never threatened the employees, and they say he left the building peacefully. Police arrested him outside the hospital in a nearby parking lot.

Authorities say besides the 9mm handgun, he also had a 38-calibur revolver and a 20-gage shotgun in his possession. Right now, it's not known if Stevenson had a permit, but we did some digging and found out that wouldn't matter in this case, for two reasons. We'll tell you why tonight on NewsChannel 11 at 10.
