Social media has proven itself to be a useful platform in staying connected, posting content and sharing opinions. But it’s probably safe to say that 28-year-old Brian Carey might have abused that online freedom.

Carey was arrested June 8 after allegedly making bomb threats to a pair of Oklahoma City malls, KFOR.com reported. He made the posts on the social media site MeetMe, which claims to help users “find new people nearby who share your interests and want to chat.”

Part of Carey’s post read “Judgement [sic] day will come this week at the Penn Square Mall and the Outlet Mall.”

And you thought your relatives from Wyoming were annoying on social media.

Carey was arrested when a police gang squad unit found him at his home later that day and determined the threat was a hoax, according to KOCO.com.

Carey was later booked into Oklahoma County Jail on a charge of making a terrorism hoax through social media.
