A Beckley man is in jail accused of kidnapping and threatening to shoot and eat three people.
John Will Jackson, 40, is in the Tygart Valley Regional Jail on $20,000 bond. State police said Jackson forced the victims to drive him to a tobacco store in Elkins early Sunday, April 21
Troopers said the victims were at a party in Beverly, but left when a fight started. They told police Jackson indicated he had a weapon and demanded they take him to the store.
The victims said that Jackson repeatedly threatened to shoot, bite and eat them. State Police said Jackson didn't have a gun. He only pretended to.
