A 20-year-old man has been charged with a felony count of Terroristic Threats for making multiple mentions towards St. Paul police officers and a state trooper on social media.
According to authorities, Harrison William Rund made the threatening posts of intending to kill the officers on Twitter shortly after being issued a speeding ticket at 1:30 a.m. by a state trooper on Feb. 4.
He sent a series of tweets from his Twitter handle, @Tha_Answer23, around 3 a.m., including the following:
throw a grenade in the room, watch all you coppers kaboom pic.twitter.com/itN8fhsxeR— Harrison Rund (@Tha_Answer23) February 4, 2014
Rund was arrested at 6:30 p.m. at his home in South St. Paul, according to the criminal complaint. At the time of the arrest, Rund fully admitted to the Twitter comments.
He said he made them because he had a bad experience with a police officer the night before, the complaint said.
He is expected to make his first court appearance on Feb. 7 or Feb. 10.
