Bond set for man accused of threats at anti-Islam event

Bond has been set for a South Dakota man who livestreamed himself brandishing weapons and making threats to the public outside an anti-Islam event.

Ehab Jaber appeared via teleconference in Lincoln County court Tuesday where bond was set at $2,500 cash.

The Argus Leader (http://argusne.ws/2pfphZh ) reports Jaber's charges stem from an incident outside an April 9 event titled "Sabotaging America: Islam's March Toward Supremacy."

In a Facebook Live video, Jaber stood in the back of the room holding a Quran until he was asked to leave. The video continued in his car, where Jaber showed several firearms.

Sioux Falls police initially said he wouldn't face charges, but forwarded the case to prosecutors for review. Attorney General Marty Jackley and Lincoln County State's Attorney Tom Wollman later announced Jaber had been charged for making terrorist threats.
