AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- Robert Marchman threatened to blow up Sheriff Richard Roundtree, Doctor's Hospital, an unknown bus station and a Circle K gas station on Walton Way, according to an incident report.

Doctors Hospital security responded to Marchman's room in the hospital on Friday morning, according to the report. Marchman also told witness, nurses and deputies that he was going to create the bombs with nails and that he had been making bombs since the second grade.

Deputies say Doctors Hospital security searched Marchman's belongings and found two bags of marijuana and a pill bottle with a possible joint.

Marchman told deputies he is in a wheelchair because a Richmond County Sheriff's deputy shot him in the back, according to the report.
