DOON, Iowa | A Lyon County man faces felony charges after leading law enforcement on a three-hour search.
Michael Eugene Kats, 53, was arrested early Wednesday morning and charged with threats of terrorism, a felony, and harassment of a public officer, a simple misdemeanor.
Lyon County Sheriff Stewart Vander Stoep said Kats called 911 and then texted a Lyon County deputy threatening to harm Kats’ ex-wife. Vander Stoep said this was nothing new for Kats, who has done something similar over the past two years.
Vander Stoep said because of the content of the messages, several law enforcement agencies searched for Kats for three hours before finding him near his home in Doon, Iowa.
Kats was bonded out on a signature bond Wednesday.
