Twitter Troll Arrested For Allegedly Threatening The Mets

(Ben Yakas) Trolls come in many forms, be it oxycodone-enriched radio blowhards, classy used car salesmen, or diminutive mayors—but there ain't no troll like a pasty, bearded internet troll hellbent on bringing the pwnage. To that end, one very passionate Mets fan has been arrested and charged for sending a series of threatening tweets to Mets executives, players, coaches, and even Citi Field.

Aryn Leroux, 42, was arrested today in West Haven for the alleged threats, which included a "specific threat" to Citi Field. He has been charged with threatening in the second degree and breach of peace. According to Richard MacLeod, Leroux is none other than notorious Mets Twitter troll @danXtanna (who deleted his profile around 4 p.m. this afternoon). MacLeod writes:

Over the past season, “Tanna” had run-ins with Mets players publicly and not-so publicly, making specific threats towards players, staff and the ballpark. While I won’t say specifically what the threats were, know that they were serious enough to warrant police attention.
