SEATTLE (AP) — A Lynnwood man who police say was linked to a domestic terrorism suspect has admitted that he swerved his car at two Marines on Interstate 5. reported that Michael D. McCright pleaded guilty to reduced charges of felony harassment and attempted malicious mischief last week. Prosecutors say they will ask for a prison term of nearly five years.

Authorities say McCright’s cell phone was used to call Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif, a Des Moines man accused of plotting to attack a south Seattle military processing station, before Abdul-Latif was arrested in a sting operation last June.

Police said that a few weeks later, McCright was driving north on I-5 in Seattle when he saw a car with a uniformed Marine inside and deliberately swerved at it, forcing it into an emergency lane.
