(Scroll down for video) A man who was not happy with his cable service, took his anger out on two Comcast employees, according to police in Michigan.

Clinton Township police said that they have arrested 21-year-old James Frederick Eichelburger, after being accused of threatening the Comcast employees last month.

Eichelburger has been charged with one count of assault with a dangerous weapon. In a separate incident, Eichelburger is accused of shooting a teenager in the chest.

He was charged with assault with intent to commit murder and a firearm offense. He was booked into jail, and his bail has been set at $1 million.

According to the criminal complaint, Eichelburger came out of his home when he saw two Comcast workers. He approached them and complained about his service.

He then pointed a gun at them and made threats. In the second incident, Eichelburger approached a car full of people and fired a shot in the air.

A 19-year-old man ran out of the car to get away from Eichelburger. Eichelburger fired another shot, and the teen was hit in the chest.

The teen was taken to the McLaren Macomb Hospital, where he was treated for a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.
