WESTMORELAND COUNTY, Pa. —

A man accused of threatening a Kiski Valley state trooper on Facebook following an arrest last year was arrested Tuesday.

Andrew Fulton is in the Westmoreland County Jail facing terroristic threats and harassment charges after police said he threatened to kill the trooper.

Channel 11's Courtney Brennan reported that the threats were made against Trooper David Williams.

According to the criminal complaint, Williams arrested Fulton in July 2012 and after the arrested Fulton wrote, "I want to hurt Williams with a gun. I will kill him. After everything I went through, I still want to get Williams for what he did."

Police said someone recently saw the threats and emailed them to police.
