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.

Seattlepi.com reports (http://is.gd/4IKQKM ) 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.
