Man Police Say Threatened Hospital Sentenced to Jail Time

A man who police say threatened to blow up Munson Medical Center has learned his punishment.

Eric Schemerhorn will spend 120 days in jail.

He was arrested back in February after a nurse told a security guard that he came to the hospital in Traverse City for back pain, and made the threat because he wasn’t being given pain medication.

A jury found Schemerhorn guilty of attempting to make a false report of a threat or bomb.
