The man in a viral Facebook video broadcasted live outside a Christian Conference in Sioux Falls earlier in April has been charged with one count of a terrorist threat.
45-year-old Ehab Jaber’s charges come from the alleged incident on April 9. In his Facebook Live video, he was seen with a number of firearms.
When authorities searched his home, they seized firearms and meth.
Jaber spoke on Facebook about the incident earlier this week.
More than 300 people turned out for the event with a former Muslim turned Christian pastor Shahram Hadian and Christian Radio Host Brannon Howse.
Jaber’s video showed him in the parking lot of the Sioux Falls hotel and in the event.
“I did not go to a Christian conference to hurt anybody. I went to protest. I went to protest an anti-Muslim rally,” Jaber said earlier this week.
Jaber says he went to join the pro-Muslim protest outside the hotel. Terrorist threat is a class 5 felony and could put in him in the state penitentiary for up to 5 years and possibly a $10,000 fine.
