Man Arrested For Threatening Blizzard HQ With An AK-47

You can file this case under "things you should never say online when you are mad." Which makes me wonder what in the hell Blizzard did to make this guy so mad? World of Warcraft's newest expansion not coming out fast enough? Still mad over Diablo III? Always getting his ass handed to him in Overwatch? Inquiring minds want to know. wink

According to court documents, between July 2, 2016, and July 3, 2016, Cebula transmitted messages over the internet to Blizzard Entertainment, in which he stated that he "may or may not pay [Blizzard] a visit with an AK47 amongst some other ‘fun’ tools," and "might be inclined to ‘cause a disturbance’ at [Blizzard’s] headquarters in California with an AK47 and a few other ‘opportunistic tools.’" Cebula was arrested on July 12, 2016, and is in custody. He is scheduled to be arraigned July 26, 2016.
