A 45-year-old Chicago man has been arrested after allegedly threatening to commit violence at the presidential inauguration scheduled for Jan. 20, the Justice Department announced Tuesday.

Louis Capriotti, a resident of Chicago Heights, allegedly claimed in a voicemail left for a House member from New Jersey that if people "think that [President-elect] Joe Biden is going to put his hand on the Bible and walk into that f***ing White House on Jan. 20th, they're sadly f***ing mistaken."

"We will surround the motherf***ing White House and we will kill any motherf***ing Democrat that steps on the motherf***ing lawn," he allegedly said, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

"Our office takes the security of our public servants very seriously," U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois John Lausch said in a statement, per the The Hill. "Individuals who cross the line of free speech by making unlawful threats will be held accountable."
