    Mets Fan arrested for tweeting threats...

    OK, which one of you is this?

    West Haven police have arrested a local man accused of Tweeting threats toward executives, players and coaches of the New York Mets, along with a specific threat to Citi Field, police said. Police arrested Aryn Leroux, 42, of 173 Contact Drive in West Haven today on an outstanding warrant.
    The Twatter really is a sign of the impending apocalypse.

    He wasn't making threats over the internet... I seen worse, about Obama on a daily basis, and when authorities are called, they say there is nothing they can do about that.

    Federal law 18 U.S.C. 875(c) states: "Whoever transmits in interstate or foreign commerce any communication containing any threat to kidnap any person or any threat to injure the person of another, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both."

    Maybe not "threats" per se, but in light of mass-shootings, this is pretty creepy:

    "There will be a blood bath at Citi Field tomorrow night. No Mets fan will get out alive if you have on a 7 line tshirt." (The 7 Line being a popular fan run tshirt maker that many fans wear to games).

    What time will you be here. I have a few things to take care of beforehand.

    Ernie was last seen investigating a rumored jaywalking charge against Mickey Rivers.
