Charles Alexander, 56, of Fruitland Township was charged Thursday with one count of making a false report of a bomb.
A police SWAT team arrested Alexander at his home Wednesday night after he told a crisis hotline operator to "get body bags ready ... because people were going to die in the explosions."
Police said Alexander has a previous conviction for possessing illegal explosives.
He is currently in custody at the Muskegon County Jail awaiting a preliminary hearing.
