Cops investigate tweet directed at MLS player
A disturbing Twitter message to Montreal Impact captain Davy Arnaud apparently came from one of the team's fans, according to the AP.
MLS player Davy Arnaud, captain of the Montreal Impact, received a disturbing message on Twitter after he made a costly turnover in a game, and now police are investigating.
The Associated Press reports Montreal police will interview the person who posted the tweet, which read: “I hope your family dies in a fire.” The tweet was reportedly one of a series of ominous or threatening comments.
According to the report posted to the team’s website on Wednesday, the police will conduct an investigation and interview the person who tweeted on June 29 a number of “profanity-laden threats” to Arnaud moments after the team’s 4-3 home loss to Colorado; Arnaud had turned the ball over late in the game, which set up the goal by the Rapids. One of the tweets read, “I hope your family dies in a fire,” to which Arnaud retweeted with his own message, “WOW. I know we lost and I made a mistake but I deserve this? I forgive you.”
The Impact released a statement to the AP saying the team “is taking this incident very seriously and will not accept threats of any kind made by individuals in regards to its players, coaches or administrative staff in order to ensure their safety."
