LINCOLNTON, N.C. -- A Lincolnton teen is accused of threatening law enforcement officers on Twitter.

The Lincoln County Sheriff s Office charged 19-year-old Marcus Daniel Sintoni with three counts of cyber stalking after he used a Twitter account to threaten law enforcement officers.

The profanity laced tweets were placed on the social media website on January 28, February 2 and February 4.

In the first tweet Sintoni wrote: I ll kill as many as I can if they catch us or run and kill as many as we can before we get away, lol.

The second tweet included: I hate police and I wanna kill police .

And in the third tweet Sintoni allegedly wrote: I hate police....I know u reading too, so come at me, I m ready, yo to all police, **** you I wanna kill you. I ll show my word.

The sheriff's office believes the teen s anger stems from a traffic stop on N.C. Highway 16 where he was one of five people in the car. Two people in the vehicle were charged, but Sintoni was not one of them.

Sintoni was arrested by ALE officers in Charlotte on February 27 and turned over to Lincoln County officials on March 12.
