A man who claimed he had a bomb in his truck crashed through the gate of a U.S. Coast Guard station early Sunday, authorities said. At approximately 6:00 a.m., the Ottawa County Dispatch warned the agency that an unknown caller had threatened to blow up the station in Grand Haven, Michigan.

Police arrived at 6:07 a.m. to find that the 34-year-old driver had broken into a station building and attacked coast guard personnel, according to the Grand Haven Department of Public Safety. The man was eventually subdued and arrested. He claimed that there was an explosive device in his truck but a bomb squad determined that wasn't the case, police said.

Investigators initially looked at the incident as a potential act of domestic terrorism but later concluded that the suspect had no link to terrorism or any terrorist organizations. Authorities have yet to determine the man’s motive and are continuing to investigate.
