WATERBURY - Connecticut State Police say a man is facing charges for allegedly threatening to bomb Donald Trump's rally in Waterbury.

Police say 20-year-old Sean Morkys sent out a tweet that read, "Is someone going to bomb the Trump rally or am I going to have to?"

Police say that tweet was followed by another that warned a friend to have his family members leave the rally so they wouldn't get hurt.

Officers say they arrested Morkys Saturday night and released him later that evening on $25,000 bond after determining he wasn't an immediate threat.

Morkys has been charged with breach of peace and threatening.

Police say he is due in court next week.

AP wire services contributed to this report.
