KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Police say a southwest Missouri man who confessed to plotting to shoot up a screening of 'Twilight' and a Walmart store had been detained after threatening a store clerk three years ago.

Bolivar Police Chief Steve Hamilton said Saturday that in 2009, 20-year-old Blaec Lammers followed a worker around a Walmart and threatened her. He wasn't charged but was committed for 96 hours.

In Missouri, hospitals, law enforcement and citizens can request a person be held against their will for up to 96 hours if he or she appears to be a threat to themselves or others.

Lammers was charged Friday with first-degree assault, making a terroristic threat and armed criminal action. His mother turned him in. He is jailed in Polk County.

Hamilton says Lammers doesn't have an attorney.
