A 30-year-old man has been charged with making threats at a hospital in southeast Nebraska.
Joseph Palensky of Sutton has been jailed pending $100,000 bail.
Sheriff Dale Radcliff says Palensky went into the emergency room at the hospital in Henderson around 8 p.m. Saturday. Radcliff says Palensky was looking for a specific doctor and made threats to harm him, but the doctor wasn't there. Authorities say Palensky threatened a nurse who was on duty.
Radcliff says Palensky told deputies who were dispatched that he was suicidal and repeated that he intended to hurt the doctor. The deputies got a gun and knife away from Palensky and took him into emergency protective custody.
