Craig Jungwirth, who threatened a Pulse-style shooting after his Beach Bear Weekend event was revealed to be little more than a scam to bilk money out of the LGBTQ community, is in federal custody.

Orlando NBC affiliate WESH2 News reports that Jungwirth, 50, was arrested Saturday by the FBI on charges of “threatening communications.”

Jungwirth denied making the threats and refused to speak to authorities further. The FBI subpoenaed Facebook, which identified Jungwirth as the user of the account that posted the threats.

Jungwirth was scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday but that hearing was postponed when he complained of chest pains and was taken to the hospital, according to WESH2 News.

In a post to Facebook user David Herbert, Jungwirth wrote, “My events are selling out cause you f**gots are total patsies. None of you deserve to live. If you losers thought the Pulse nightclub shooting was bad, wait till you see what I’m planning for Labor Day.”

When Herbert said he was contacting police, Jungwirth doubled down.

“I’m gonna be killing you f*gs faster than the cops kill n**gers. It’s time to clean up Wilton Manors from all you AIDS infested losers,” he wrote.

Jungwirth, who allegedly has a history of stalking and harassing his neighbors, is facing a possible sentence of five years in prison if found guilty. He could face arraignment as early as today.
