Detroit man makes terrorist attacks on SnapChat
A Detroit man is facing felony charges after he’s alleged to have posted a video on social media of him holding a handgun and saying he was going to shoot police officers, according to a release from the Royal Oak Police Department.
According to the release, in March, Martin Gisstennal, 28, posted a SnapChat video of himself holding a handgun and threatening police while driving near Greenfield and Normandy as police, paramedics and firefighters there were working on a car accident.
Authorities are charging Gisstennal with one count of a false report or threat of terrorism, for which he can serve up to 20 years in prison, and one count of carrying a concealed weapon, for which he can serve up to five years in prison.
Gisstennal has in the past been convicted of driving with a suspended license, police say.
He was arraigned on Saturday, Aug. 10, with a bond set at $25,000 cash or surety.
