MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A man is charged with making harassing phone calls to the Miami Beach Police Department and posting expletive-laced threats against officers in an online law enforcement bulletin board.
The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/2kNEQ9W ) reports 54-year-old Ricky Weinberger was charged with threatening law enforcement and harassment during a hearing on Monday. He was booked into jail Saturday.
Miami Beach police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez says the department believes they "potentially averted a catastrophic crisis."
An arrest report says the agency's lawyer asked Weinberger to stop making threats, to no avail. A judge also ordered him to stop. But in January he began posting on LeoAffairs.com, a non-official website for individual police departments.
