PONTE VEDRA BEACH Fla.-- After weeks of alleged threats to the Pastor at Christ Episcopal Church and years of allegedly peering into its preschool windows at children, 29-year old Andrew Hahn is back behind bars.

Action News has learned police previously arrested Hahn in 2008 for snapping photos of children showering at the Ponte Vedra Inn and Club.

That's when Christ Episcopal banned him from stepping foot on its campus. 

But just last week, police say Hahn threatened the church pastor with a chainsaw, his neighbors aren't surprised. 

"There's always police cars around," said neighbor Stan Herndon.

Herndon says recently he's watched Hahn act recklessly on his street. 

"We're just concerned he's riving cars fast down the street and some yelling and screaming going on down there it's disturbing other neighbors," said Herndon.

Action News reached out to Hahn's father who says his son has been diagnosed with asperger's syndrome, but isn't violent. He showed Action News an employee of the month certificate Hahn was given by his boss at K-Mart. 

Neighbors are happy Hahn is safely locked away in the St. Johns County Jail, but they also hope he gets the help he needs. 

"I hope he can get some help and maybe get is life back on track," said Herndon.
