Brandon James Ziobrowski, of Cambridge, was arrested and charged with making a threat.

According to U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling, Ziobrowski, 33, tweeted “I am broke but will scrounge and literally give $500 to anyone who kills an ICE agent. @me seriously who else can pledge get in on this let’s make this work.”
