A Tippecanoe County man was arrested Wednesday on charges of threatening to kill police and judges.

A tipster sent screenshots of posts on Sam Bradbury's Facebook page in which he threatened to kill a Tippecanoe County judge, an Indiana Supreme Court Justice and specific Tippecanoe County cops, according to court documents. The posts also described an intent to kill police generally and to "blow the Tippecanoe County Courthouse to pieces."

In other posts, Bradbury allegedly claimed that Jerad and Amanda Miller, two suspects in a shooting spree earlier this month that killed two Las Vegas police officers and a civilian, were part of the "765 Anarchists" group that he leads. The posts reportedly go on to claim the 765 Anarchists had been forming for years with the explicit purpose of killing cops in the local area and that they had gathered thermite and explosives to potentially be used by a suicide bomber.

As of Saturday night, Bradbury was still being held in the Tippecanoe County Jail.
