LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - A Shallowater man was out of jail Wednesday night, after Lubbock Police say he took a gun into a hospital Wednesday morning. 

Brian Stevenson, 34, bonded out just before 5 p.m. Wednesday. He is charged with unlawfully carrying weapons and public intoxication. The staff at Covenant Specialty Hospital noticed a handgun in his waistband Wednesday morning when Stevenson walked in saying no one was going to take his mother out of the hospital. They alerted police, but say Stevenson did not threaten them and that he walked out peacefully.

Police arrested Stevenson outside the hospital in a near-by parking lot. They say aside from the 9mm handgun, he also had a 38-calibur revolver and a 20-gage shotgun in his possession.

We checked, and even if Stevenson has a permit, his actions are still illegal for two reasons. One, police tell us taking a gun into a hospital in Texas is against the law, and two, carrying a weapon while you're intoxicated is also illegal, regardless of a permit. The weapons charge is a Class-A misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
