UPDATE: A Mason County man accused of threatening to kill his neighbor is now charged with more crimes.

Michigan State Police say Steven Thorne was drunk on Saturday afternoon when he started shooting his shotgun at his neighbor's house on East Dewey Road.

Troopers arrested Thorne at the scene and took him to jail.

He's now being charged with "Assault With Intent to Murder" and for having a felony firearm.

Troopers say that Thorne was fighting with corrections officers at the jail; he pulled out a lighter and set toilet paper on fire inside his cell.

The suspect also told troopers that if he got out of jail, he would kill his neighbor.
