Minnesota man threatens to kill St. Paul police on Twitter after speeding ticket
ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) - A 21-year-old South St. Paul man pleaded guilty to terroristic threats on Monday after threatening to kill St. Paul police officers and a Minnesota State Trooper on Twitter. It all transpired after receiving a speeding ticket issued by the State Patrol on Feb. 4, 2014.
Harrison William Rund chose to channel that anger hours later by tweeting a photo of St. Paul police officers with the caption: "Throw a grenade in the room, watch all you coppers kaboom."
Other tweets would go on to mention a St. Paul officer by name, including a threat to kill five police officers. Investigators say Rund posted those tweets from his home in South St. Paul.
Judge Timothy McManus set the sentencing date for Jan. 20, 2016 in Hastings.
