Investigators developed information that Jean-Baptiste was inside the club and had made threats to an individual. Officers were unable to immediately locate Jean-Baptiste, but developed additional evidence to charge Jean-Baptiste with Threats to do Bodily Harm and Threats to Intimidate a Witness based on statements made by Jean-Baptiste at the nightclub.
