MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) - A New Hope, Minnesota man was charged after allegedly threatening a Minneapolis police officer after he didn't allow gang members into a night club in downtown Minneapolis.
Trevor Deontre Schlotfeldt-Gidney, 22, was charged with terroristic threats and faces up to 10 years behind bars and a $10,000 fine.
According to the criminal complaint, on October 8 the off-duty officer working at the night club refused to let several known members of the Young 'n Thugging (YNT) gang into the club. There had been several gang shootings in the area at the time.
The next day several threats toward the officer appeared on Facebook. Schlotfeldt-Gidney, a known member of YNT, posted a comment on his page saying someone needed to "wack his b---- a--".
He also called out the officer by name, said he was "coward" and used several emojis, including the middle finger emoji.
Police have interacted with Schlotfeldt-Gidney. He has also been a suspect in a shooting.
Schlotfeldt-Gidney had his first appearance on Thursday. The judge set his bail at $75,000 with conditions and $200,000 without conditions.
