A Cambridge man is in custody after tweeting that he’d pay $500 to anyone who killed a federal immigration agent, authorities announced.
Brandon James Ziobrowski, 33, is expected to make his initial appearance on a charge of using interstate and foreign commerce to transmit a threat to injure another person today in U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of New York. He’ll be arraigned in the federal courthouse in South Boston at 3 p.m. next Wednesday.
U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling, Boston FBI Special Agent in Charge Harold Shaw and Boston Homeland Security Investigations Special Agent in Charge Peter Fitzhugh held a press conference yesterday morning to announce the arrest — and condemn a rise in threats and violence against law enforcement.
“We’ve seen an uptick in attacks on law enforcement officers,” Shaw said, citing examples such as officers shot to death in Weymouth and Yarmouth this year.
Authorities say Ziombrowski — tweeting under the handle @Vine_II and name adobe_flash_player.dmg — wrote on July 2: “I am broke but I will scrounge and literally give $500 to anyone who kills and ice agent. @me seriously who else can pledge get in on this let’s make it work.”
