A 20-year-old Killeen man is behind bars after police said he threatened to kill a police officer.

Adrian Juergen Summers was charged with obstruct retaliation and evading arrest in connection with an incident Monday.

Killeen police had gone to an apartment complex in the 1700 block of Terrace Drive to detain Summers, who was being investigated in connection to a recent robbery, according to an arrest affidavit.

When police saw Summers, they ordered him to get on the ground. Instead, he started running through the complex and jumped a fence.

An officer pursued Summers on foot and over the fence. Summers then turned around with clenched fists and shouted profanities at the officer.

The officer again ordered Summers to get on the ground, but Summers began to approach the officer, the affidavit states.

The officer then fired a Taser at Summers and detained him.

Summers then repeatedly stated he was going to kill the officer. He said he would put the officer "6 feet under" and that if he ever saw the officer on the street, he would kill him.

Summers threatened to kill several other officers while in transit to the city jail.

Justice of the Peace Garland Potvin arraigned Summers Wednesday, setting his bail at $55,000. Summers remained in Bell County Jail Wednesday night.
