Hotel guest arrested for negative review that allegedly threatened 'active shooter-style' event

The Cocoa Beach Police Department arrested 40-year-old Joseph McKinney, WFTV 9 reports. He was reportedly taken into custody after departing a cruise ship which had recently returned to Port Canaveral on Sunday morning.

McKinney had allegedly written a negative review for the Hilton Cocoa Beach Oceanfront Hotel after a recent stay. According to WFTV 9, authorities claimed that McKinney made a reference to an “active shooter-style” event at the hotel, along with other instances of threatening language.
