A Mississippi man has been arrested and charged with cyberstalking after sheriff’s deputies say he threatened to kill a law enforcement officer in a social media post.
Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office deputies say Edward Anderson Jr., has been charged with cyberstalking.
Investigators say Anderson went on social media and made a deadly threat to a law enforcement officer.
Threatening anyone on social media is a felony, regardless of whether or not they’re a law officer, deputies said.
