Iowa City Police arrest a man who they determined was making claims that he would kill police officers on a fake Facebook account. They police had been tipped off that a man with the profile name "Mike Jones" was making the threats, and by looking at videos and photographs, police officers determined that Michael McCullum, 30, was the actual person behind the Facebook page.

Criminal complaints say the posting included "I've thought about shooting every white cop I see in the head until I'm either caught by the police or killed by them. Ha!!!! I think I can pull it off. Might kill at least fifteen tomorrow. I'm plotting now." He's charged with 1st degree harassment. McCullum was booked early on Wednesday morning in the Johnson County Jail; he's held on a $100,000 bond.
