A man who allegedly made online threats against Supreme Court justices after the institution overturned Roe v. Wade has been arrested, The Colony Police Department announced on Monday.

FBI agents contacted The Colony PD on Friday, June 24, just after 9:30 p.m., concerning threats of violence made on Twitter toward the nation’s highest court.

Officers executed a search warrant on the suspect’s residence but did not find him there at the time, authorities said. The suspect is identified as Mikeal Deshawn Archambault.

In conjunction with the FBI, detectives from The Colony Police Department’s criminal investigative division obtained a probable cause warrant. Upon returning to the suspect’s residence and locating him there, officers arrested him and charged him with terroristic threats.

Archambault is being held on a $25,000 bond, according to NBC 5 News. It is not clear whether he has any legal representation.

Archambault’s arrest follows the June 8 apprehension of 26-year-old Nicholas John Roske from Simi Valley, California, for allegedly attempting to murder Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. As reported by The Dallas Express, Roske was arrested after calling 911, reportedly claiming to have suicidal thoughts and plans to kill Kavanaugh.

Roske was upset about the then-recently leaked Supreme Court draft suggesting the justices could overturn Roe v. Wade. Roske also stated that he was upset about the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, and reportedly expressed his belief that Kavanaugh would vote to “weaken gun control.”

When arrested, Roske had in his possession “pepper spray, a tactical knife, a Glock-17 pistol, zip ties, and a crowbar,” Breitbart News noted. Roske is now facing up to 20 years, the maximum sentence for an attempted murder charge, if found guilty of the crime.

Kavanaugh and his neighbors have suffered the ire of pro-abortion protesters who assembled biweekly in the justice’s neighborhood after the leak, The Dallas Express reported.

The homes of justices on the Court have been frequently picketed by demonstrators since the leak of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization draft decision in May.

Some of the demonstrations have been accompanied by threatening behavior. Crowds of up to 100 protesters have chanted slogans, used bullhorns, and banged drums while picketing justices’ homes in Maryland.
