Missouri - A St. Louis man is facing charges for allegedly tweeting about killing police and an explosion at the St. Louis City Justice Center.

The St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s office said Thursday that 35-year-old Jason Valentine is charged with 10 counts of making a terrorist threat meant to frighten people.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Valentine is being held on a $100,000 cash-only bail. It’s not clear from online court records whether he has an attorney.

The probable cause statement says Valentine tweeted about “kill a pig night” throughout December. It also says Valentine threatened an explosion at the Justice Center on Wednesday.

Many of the tweets allegedly mentioned Ferguson, where a black 18-year-old was shot and killed by a white police officer. Valentine’s Twitter account has been suspended.
