Man arrested for social media death threat
COLUMBIA - Columbia Police arrested a man and accused him of harassment early Wednesday morning, saying he posted a threat on a social media site.
Police said Gregory Phipps, 23, admitted to posting on Erodr under his own name, making the following statement.
"I'll be in prison for awhile, but that's okay I guess. Some of you should be ready to die tomorrow. If you want to topple a country prison is the least I can do to show you what you deserve."
