Man arrested after threats caused evacuation

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

A homeless man is in jail after police say he walked into the Archbold Urgent Care Center in Thomasville and threatened to blow up the building.

Authorities said 55 year old Michael Sharpe then barricaded himself in the bathroom after making the statements.

"We are glad we were able to get him out of the building without anyone getting hurt, and also the patients and employees without any danger," said Lt. Eric Hampton with Thomasville Police.

Management evacuated the building and Police took him into custody without incident. They are trying to figure out a motive.
