BOZEMAN, Mont. -

A man ticketed under the name John Doe faces charges for threatening to kill police officers and their families. He was later identified as Larry Ward Hill, and was reportedly causing problems at a bar in Belgrade, and allegedly threatening to kill the bartenders.

When police arrived, officers say Hill promised them if he got arrested, he was going to kill them and everyone in their families.

Charging documents say Hill had no ID on him at the time, and wouldn't give his full name, so he was charged as John Doe. In Gallatin County Justice Court Thursday morning he faced charges of disorderly conduct, obstructing a peace officer, and felony intimidation.

Judge Rick West set Hill's bail at $20,000.
