Minnesota man arrested for threatening Facebook posts

A Minnesota man is accused of threatening Mayo Clinic staff on a Facebook post which police say shows him holding a replica assault rifle.

Rochester authorities say the 36-year-old Pine Island man was apparently dissatisfied with his treatment at Mayo and posted a photo saying he was going to go "intern hunting."

Someone reported the Facebook posts to Mayo security and police were called. The man was arrested Friday.
