California man accused of ESPN post about killing kids arrested

A California man accused of posting comments on ESPN's website that claimed he was watching kids and wouldn't mind killing them is in jail on $1 million bail after he was arrested for investigation of making terrorist threats.

Authorities say several guns were found Monday at the home of former Yale University student Eric Yee.

The 21-year-old was arrested after the sports network ESPN reported threatening posts were made in a reader response section to an online story about new Nike sneakers named after LeBron James.

Authorities say the online posts claimed the shooting would be like the one in Auora, Colo., where 12 people were killed and 58 were injured in July.

Yee lives with his parents in a home overlooking two schools in northern Los Angeles County.

Officials at Yale say he withdrew from the university in May for undisclosed reasons.
