A man was arrested in Kent, WA this past Wednesday after reportedly making death threats against conservative talk show host Ben Shapiro.
Shapiro told Fox News he couldn’t comment on pending legal proceedings but confirmed the situation, as reported by TMZ, on Twitter, thanking law enforcement “for their quick and hard work here.”
The suspect reportedly threatened both Shapiro and his family. Sources told the outlet the threats were “extremely serious.”
Shapiro, who currently serves as editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire and hosted an election show on Fox News last year, filed a report with the Los Angeles Police Department related to the threats, according to TMZ.
The agency, along with the FBI, reportedly created a joint task force to search for the suspect.
“Thanks to local and federal law enforcement for their quick and hard work here,” Shapiro wrote in a Twitter post. “Stay safe out there, everyone!”
