Police say a man in Bradley County made an explosive device and told his brother he was going to blow everyone up.

The Bradley County Sheriff's Office says they responded to John Burchfield's home on Rose Avenue last year in November.

He told deputies he made a device to scare off the demons that were after him.

Investigators say the device had all of the components of an explosive device but lacked a detonator.

Burchfield was taken to the hospital for a mental evaluation and was booked into jail Sunday.

He's charged with making terroristic threats and possession of an explosive device.
