TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — A man accused of firing a shotgun into the air and threatening to blow up a marina resort in the Lakebay area on the Key Peninsula, has been charged.

The News Tribune of Tacoma reports that Russell Beery was charged Wednesday with threatening to bomb property and felony harassment. He has been ordered held without bail as he undergoes psychiatric evaluations.

Prosecutors say Beery threatened to bomb the Lakebay Marina Resort Tuesday after he had been drinking. They say he was on a 30-foot boat secured to a dock and told bystanders he’s strapped explosives to marina fuel tanks.

Court records show Beery believed people were out to get him when the incident occurred.
