A woman told authorities she had been smoking methamphetamine with a Macon man at a hotel when he pointed a weapon at her and threatened to kill her during a dispute.

The incident happened at the Baymont Inn & Suites on Riverside Drive in Macon about 2 a.m. Tuesday, according to a Bibb County Sheriff’s Office incident report.

Officials found the woman “frantic and visibly shaken.” They found Michael Beavers, 29, in his hotel room with marijuana, methamphetamine and prescription pills in his pocket, the report said. A meth pipe, scales and needles were found on his bed, as well as a replica pistol matching a description given by the woman.

Beavers had been involved in a similar incident at the same location with a different person several weeks ago, the report stated.

He was charged with simple assault, possession of marijuana, possession of methamphetamine, possession of a Schedule III controlled substance, and probation violation, the report said.

He was being held at the Bibb County jail on $6,250 bond, according to the inmate information system.
