A Carter County, Tennessee man is charged by Johnson City police after he walked into their offices and shouted about blowing things up.

Naithen L. Lovette, 28, of Elizabethton, who is charged with one count of false reporting, entered the records division of the JCPD offices on E. Main Street just after 12:30 p.m. and gave a hand written note to a duty clerk that the report said was "filled with very detailed and disturbing information."

After the clerk asked how she could help, Lovette reportedly said, "Call everybody, call my attorney, I'm blowing everything up," according to the report.

Officers were dispatched to the offices along with an explosives detection K9 officer who found no evidence of a bomb and took Lovette into custody. He is being held on a $50,000 bond and is set to be arraigned Friday in General District Court in Jonesborough.
