Man arrested for Twitter threats against New York Mets


It’s been a bad few days for baseball ‘fans’ from Connecticut.

Just a few days after a ‘fan’ broke into the Red Sox clubhouse hours after Boston had won the American League Championship, a fellow Connecticut native has found himself in legal hot water, this after allegedly making threats to members of the New York Mets organization on social media.

Per NBC Connecticut:

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.

The man in question is apparently somewhat well known for his anti-Mets trolling but this time, looks as if he took the bullying too far.

He’s currently being held on a $2,500 dollar bond and is set to be arraigned at Milford Superior Court in the near future.

I mean seriously – really? If only Dave Chappelle still had his show on Comedy Central where he could do a spoof on ‘When keeping it real goes wrong’, but turn it into ‘When trolling on Twitter goes wrong’.

At least he didn’t have a boxer show up at his house after mocking him on social media.
