Louis Koleszar, the 58-year-old Colorado man charged with making false alarms after he allegedly threatened to bomb Kent State, appeared in court Friday morning for his preliminary hearing.

Judge Kevin Poland postponed the hearing upon Koleszar’s arrival, instead ordering him to further mental evaluation.

Poland said he wants Koleszar’s competency determined so the court can decide whether he is able to assist his attorney in his defense.

Koleszar was referred to Summit Psychological for the evaluation.
