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.

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