CHEBOYGAN, Mich. (AP) – Authorities say a man who tried to swallow cyanide in court in 2012 after being sentenced for polluting a Lake Huron bay is being held in Wisconsin after missing Michigan court dates.
The Cheboygan Daily Tribune reports 52-year-old Scotland Stivers was picked up in June by authorities in Wisconsin’s Marinette County.
The Sault Ste. Marie-area man is being held on $100,000 bond and is fighting extradition.
He was charged with endangering Cheboygan County courtroom personnel after authorities say he tried to swallow cyanide from a vial. In the pollution case, he pleaded no contest in 2011 after authorities said he illegally moored three old tugboats.
In Chippewa County, where he has an assault case, authorities said poison and 25 firearms were found during a search of his home.
