Brandon Griesemer, of Novi, was arrested last week after federal authorities said he made 22 calls to the news network, including one in which he complained about “fake news” and pledged, “Fake news. I’m coming to gun you all down.”

He reportedly added, “I’m smarter than you, More powerful than you. I have more guns than you. More manpower. Your cast is about to get gunned down in a matter of hours.”

Griesemer was charged Friday in U.S. District Court with a felony county of transmitting interstate communications with the intent to extort and threat to injure. Griesemer is free from jail after posting a $10,000 bond.
