Yesterday evening's alarming initial news that the FBI, local police and the Lake County Bomb Squad were engaged in a law enforcement matter at the Perry nuclear power plant ended up being a non-credible threat, as in that there was no bomb.

But, a Michigan man who drove to the power plant claimed to have one.



He's now under arrest and faces charges of making false alarms and aggravated trespass in Lake County.

Authorities say 33-year-old Michigan man Michael Fogelsong drove a pickup truck with an enclosed trailer to the security gate and refused to leave, telling guards he had a bomb.

Thankfully, that wasn't true.

"We want to ensure everyone that there is no ongoing threat or imminent threat to the Perry Nuclear Power Plant," the Lake County Sheriff's Department said in a statement. "This appears to be an isolated incident."
