A Novi man was arrested last week and now faces federal criminal charges following an FBI investigation alleging he called CNN Atlanta headquarters several times with threats to “gun down” employees for presenting “fake news.”

According to federal court documents filed by the Eastern District of Michigan, 19-year-old Brandon Griesemer was arrested January 19 for a federal threatening charge. He has also been charged with interstate communications with intent to extort.
