Feds Say Man Threatened Police Online Days After NYPD Deaths

Tuesday, 06 Jan 2015 08:21 PM

A New York man accused of issuing online threats against police officers has been charged with a federal crime.

The U.S. attorney's office says Mount Vernon resident Jeremy Mott made the threats on Facebook and Instagram on Christmas Eve, days after two New York Police Department officers were ambushed and killed.

A complaint says Mott's threats included a photograph of someone firing into a police car through a window, how the NYPD officers were attacked.

The complaint says the Facebook message read, "If the cops in Mount Vernon think they can follow the madness this is how they are going to end up." It says the Instagram message included the phrase "not playing no games."

Mott was arrested Tuesday and released on bond. His attorney hasn't returned a call seeking comment.
