US Attorney: Man Tweeted For Ice Agent To DIe

A Cambridge man is facing charges  after he allegedly posted a 500-dollar reward for the killing of a  federal immigration officer.  

Federal prosecutors say Brandon Ziobrowski  tweeted in July that he would pay 500-dollars to anyone who kills an  ICE agent.  

He was arrested yesterday in New York and is facing a  federal charge of using an interstate device to transmit a threat to  injure or kill another person.  

Ziobrowski's arraignment is set for next  week in Boston federal court.

US Attorney Andrew Lelling says that the fact that the defendant voiced a political view was never the issue.

That he threatened violence and tried to follow through on it, was.
