Springfield man threatens to blow up hospital
Clint Kiser, 56, was charged with making a terroristic threat. He failed to appear in court twice last week on the charges, but appeared Monday and pleaded not guilty.

A next court date in the case has not been set.
Springfield police began their investigation Wednesday when they were called to a home where Kiser told them he needed to go to Springfield Regional Medical Center because he was feeling suicidal.
He was transported to the hospital, where he was treated.
Officers were called back Thursday to the hospital, where staff said Kiser made threats.
“Officers made contact with hospital security and stated that Mr. Kiser was treated and released and refused to leave because he was unhappy with care,” the affidavit says. “(The employee) stated that Mr. Kiser threw a pen at a nurse. (The employee) stated that Mr. Kiser was complaining that he had no ride and continued to be belligerent, throwing his paperwork across the floor.”
The staff member said Kiser was informed that he needed leave, and that’s when he told staff he would come back to the hospital and “bomb it.”“And further stated that ‘this would be another Dayton, Ohio, massacre.’”
Security removed the man from the property and then made contact with police, according to the affidavit.
Kiser was contacted by police and arrested shortly after, the affidavit says.
He was still listed as an inmate in the Clark County Jail Tuesday morning.
