SEATTLE — Prosecutors say a man who tried to run a uniformed Marine and another officer off a Seattle road in July had apparently been in contact with a terrorism suspect.

Michael D. McCright was charged Tuesday with swerving his car at a government sedan on July 12.

Prosecutors say the Marines had just left a military recruiting station in South Seattle that was the target of what authorities described as a foiled terror plot by two men, Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif of Seattle and Walli Mujahidh of Los Angeles.

They were arrested in June.

In asking for bail to be set at $2 million, prosecutors wrote that McCright's cell phone had been used three times to contact Abdul-Latif prior to his arrest. McCright has not been charged in connection with any terrorism but authorities say they are investigating.

It was not immediately clear if McCright had obtained a lawyer.
