No word on when he's due back in court.


A scary scene outside the Lansing Mall Sunday.

Police arrested a man wearing tactical gear, armed with several guns.

One appeared to be a large semi-automatic rifle.

But when officers stopped him, they found the weapons were not real but toy airsoft guns.

Police say the man was combative and may have been drinking.

He's behind bars at the Eaton County jail.
