CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A police recruit accused of threatening to kill fellow officers at his graduation ceremony has been released on bail on conditions that include staying out of New Hampshire.

Twenty-four-year-old Noah Beaulieu is required to live with his family in Connecticut. He can’t come to New Hampshire except to see his lawyer or appear in court. He’s charged with criminal threatening.

A police affidavit said other recruits told the Laconia officer to stop making the comments and that they weren’t funny, but Beaulieu continued to talk about bringing machine guns and ammunition to the graduation ceremony. They also reported he said a movie would be made about him when he became a serial killer.

Beaulieu’s lawyer said his client never intended to harm anyone.

The ceremony went on as planned.
