PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP/WHDH) — A Rhode Island man faces a charge of threatening Gillette Stadium before the New England Patriots’ regular-season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Tobias Gray appeared in a Rhode Island court on Monday, wearing a New York Giants jersey, on a fugitive from justice charge and charges related to an unrelated domestic assault charge in East Providence.
He did not enter a plea.
He agreed to waive extradition to Massachusetts, where he is wanted by Foxborough police for “making terroristic threats.”
His attorney, Stefanie DiMaio Larivee, said her client apparently made a Facebook post expressing his displeasure at reports that the Patriots signed receiver Antonio Brown.
“Since the Patriots signed Antonio Brown I’m going to pull a white boys school shooting at Foxboro,” the post read. “You might as well just hand them the ring right now. If I ever get my hands on a gun, which I don’t have one yet, but I’m looking. I will go shoot up random people at Foxboro.”
Larivee says Gray took down the post and meant no harm.
Foxborough police had no immediate comment.
