Peshwaz Azad Waise, 28, was arrested today at the Denton County Courthouse following reports of a suspicious person at 207 N. Bonnie Brae Street, according to Denton Police spokesperson Orlando Hinojosa.

Around 8 a.m. Wednesday, police were dispatched to the Texas Health and Surgery Center for a suspicious person making threats in the center. Shortly after, police were again dispatched to the Courthouse to find Waise.

It was confirmed that Waise was the same person on scene making threats at the Health and Surgery Center. At that point, officers had enough information to obtain an arrest warrant for threats made at the Texas Health and Surgery Center, according to an affidavit.

After making it through security, Waise was found at the Courthouse screaming and was removed by police.

“He was loud enough to get the Denton County Sheriff’s attention,” Hinojosa said. “He wanted to talk to judges and give them a copy of the Quran.”

During the time following the arrest, a bomb squad was on site, and police were searching the suspect’s vehicle. The Northwest Corner of the Courthouse parking lot was closed during the search and visitors could not enter or leave. Around 12:30 p.m., the parking lot was opened and visitors were once again free to come and go.

Waise is now being held at the Denton City Jail.
