A Philadelphia man has been charged with threatening to shoot Sen. Joe Lieberman, NBC Connecticut reported.

Authorities alleged that Dmitry Dyatlov, 23, a U.S. citizen who came from Uzbekistan in 1998, wrote on a blog: “Actually, there is , at least, one Jew, who we absolutely must shoot in the face (many times), ASAP: Joe Lieberman.”

The station reported that FBI agents went to his apartment on Aug. 2 after being alerted of the posting by the U.S. Capitol Police.

The station reported that a co-worker alerted authorities to the blog post after Dyatlov stopped showing up for work as a Information Technology specialist with Accenture Consulting.

He was detained after a detention hearing Tuesday, but was expected to be released on a tether, the station reported.
