Scott Gleeson, from the USA TODAY reports a Rhode Island man is facing terroristic threat and felony domestic assault charges after he threatened via Facebook a “school shooting” at Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts, writing in a since-deleted post that he’d “shoot up random people at Foxboro.”
After the New England Patriots signed Antonio Brown on Sept. 7, the Facebook page of Tobias Gray, 44, featured a post with the threats, his attorney Stefanie DiMaio-Larivee confirmed to USA TODAY Sports by phone.
“The threats were on his page. If he did make them, he was acting as an angry fan,” DiMaio-Larivee said. “He meant no harm, and he wants to make it clear he is not a terrorist.”
Gray’s post vented about the Patriots acquiring Brown and his threats prompted the Foxborough (Massachusetts) Police Department to file a criminal complaint and charge Gray ahead of the Patriots’ season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
