Sandusky, Ohio (AP) -- A Pennsylvania man accused in a bomb scare at an Ohio amusement park has pleaded no contest to inducing panic.

Police at Cedar Point in Sandusky accused 27-year-old Kelly Albrecht of Cranberry Township, Pa., of leaving a fake bomb under his car at the park on July 17.

A bomb squad destroyed the device, which turned out to be harmless. Albrecht was arrested when he returned to his vehicle.

If convicted of the misdemeanor charge, he faces up to six months in jail.

The park has not said much about the device, though one police official said it contained wiring.

Cedar Point police chief Ray Majoy says Albrecht has been cooperative.
