WATERBURY, CT (WFSB) -

A 26-year-old man was arrested for threatening to kill police in Waterbury.

Authorities said Ramon McFarlane III, of Waterbury, tweeted several messages last week, including one that called for people to shoot a cop.

The account called for other actions against police officers including hacking their financial records and emails.

McFarlane, who's a local musician, faces a felony count of "inciting injury to police officers" and harassment.

McFarlane will be in court next week.
