GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (AP) - A man has been arrested after driving a pickup through a U.S. Coast Guard station gate in western Michigan following a bomb threat.

The Coast Guard says Ottawa County dispatchers received a phone call about 6 a.m. Sunday from a man claiming he had a bomb in his truck and was going to blow up the station in Grand Haven, about 30 miles northwest of Grand Rapids.

The pickup crashed through the gate as evacuation notifications were taking place.

Grand Haven Public Safety Director Jeff Hawke says the man broke into a building, assaulted Coast Guard personnel and said a bomb was in the truck.

Hawke says the incident is being treated as "an act of domestic terrorism" because it occurred at a federal building.

No bomb has been found.
