A Boston-area man has been arrested by federal agents in New York after threatening U.S. immigration agents on Twitter.

Brandon Ziobrowski, 33, of Cambridge, Massachusetts, was arrested Thursday morning after posting on Twitter in July that he would give $500 to anyone who would kill an Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent.
