Miami bomb scare suspect to get mental health eval

A mental health evaluation has been ordered for the man police say drove the hearse involved in Miami's bomb scare.

Twenty-eight year-old Lee Lewis was being held at a detention center on $36,500 bond after a hearing Sunday.

Police found Lewis' abandoned hearse on Friday filled with what appeared to be a cache of weapons, ammunition and rocket launchers. Authorities later said the weapons were fake replicas. The investigation closed major highways and snarled traffic for hours.

According to his MySpace page, Lewis says he's a fetish model and fireplay entertainer.

Lewis has been arrested multiple times. In 2001, he pleaded no contest to battery charges. He also did time for grand theft and drug possession between 2006 and 2008.
