ST. LOUIS, Oct. 31 (UPI) -- A St. Louis man was arrested and charged with making a terrorist threat by tweeting about bombing Busch Stadium during the World Series, authorities said.

Robert Metzinger, 30, was charged with the misdemeanor after his former employers alerted investigators he was making the threats on Twitter, KMOV-TV, St. Louis, reported.

Metzinger's messages referenced the April 15, 2013, bombing at the finish line of the Boston Marathon and also mentioned a pressure cooker.
