Man arrested for bomb threat in Spokane charged with arson

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Police have identified the man who threatened to blow up the office of the Spokane County Democrats as 45-year-old Peter Yeager of Grand Coulee, Washington. Authoriteis say he was mad at the whole government system. Police said Yeager did not actually have a bomb inside a backpack he carried into the office on Wednesday. But he was charged with first degree arson Thursday for starting a fire in the building. Yeager told police he does not support any political party and was not targeting Democrats.
