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.

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