TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities have identified a man arrested after threatening to blow up his recreational vehicle outside a Tucson police substation during a 10-hour standoff.

Police said Thursday that 37-year-old Thomas Scott Mills Jr. has been booked into the Pima County Jail on one felony count of terrorism and one felony count of hoax.

They say Mills parked his RV next to a police building around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday and called 911 to say he was armed with automatic weapons, tactical gear and propane.

Police say Mills held up a fuel can from inside the RV along with a knife and large hammer.

After Mills was arrested, police say they found a fuel can with a small amount of gas plus propane in the RV but no explosives, firearms or tactical gear.
