Freeborn County Judge Steve Schwab ordered a pre-sentence investigation be conducted, and sentencing has been scheduled for Feb. 14, 2013.

Court records state on Nov. 2 Andrews reportedly drove up to a residence at 2338 Larson Ave., loaded a shotgun in the front seat and then threatened to kill a man who questioned what Andrews was doing.

After a fight between Andrews, the victim and the victim’s brother and father, Andrews took off from the scene in the vehicle, court files state. He was later stopped by police near the intersection of U.S. Highway 65 and Interstate 35.

Records state officers found a 20-gauge Mossberg shotgun with two rounds in it, along with a 20-gauge round and a shotgun case, at the Larson Street address.

They found a 20-gauge Savage shotgun and 39 20-gauge shot shells in the back seat of the vehicle.

In what was a separate case, Andrews also pleaded guilty to one count of misdemeanor domestic assault in court Friday.

He remains in the Freeborn County jail on a conditional bail of $75,000.
