A Connecticut man has been arrested after threatening the Mets.

His weapon of choice?  Twitter.

42 year old Aryn Leroux is no stranger to the Mets.

He is one of their staunchest critics. He finally went a little too far when he threatened players, a player’s girlfriend and the suits in the front office.

Using the handle @danxtanna, Leroux encouraged other Mets fans to “act like the slasher from Friday the 13th” towards members of the organization.

He threatened relief pitcher Llatroy Hawkins, infielder Justin Turner and Turner’s girlfriend. He also allegedly threatened to blow up Citi Field.

Leroux has been charged with second degree threatening and breach of peace.  He posted $2,500 bail.

This incident comes just one day after Giants running back Brandon Jacobs received death threats via twitter before Monday night’s game against the Vikings.
