GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (AP) - A judge has accepted an insanity claim by a man charged with making a bomb threat and crashing his pickup truck at a U.S. Coast Guard station in western Michigan.

Ottawa County Judge Ed Post says Matthew Krueger is not guilty by reason of insanity, based on evaluations by two mental health professionals. The Grand Haven Tribune (http://bit.ly/1Mp4bOp ) says the 34-year-old appeared in court Friday and must spend at least 60 days at a state psychiatric center.

Krueger was accused of crashing his pickup at the Coast Guard gate in Grand Haven in February. Separately, he’s facing arson charges in Oceana County.

Krueger is listed as a resident of Westmont, Illinois, but he had been living in Oceana County, 50 miles north of Grand Haven.
