A 19-year-old man was arrested after allegedly making an online threat to bring an assault rifle to the amusement park, La Ronde.

The man was arrested overnight on Friday and was released on a promise to appear in court.

The alleged threat, made on the man’s Facebook account, was an apparent act of retaliation for the arrest of his friend who was physically removed from the park. A video of that arrest has been circulating on the internet.

Montreal police started an investigation and confirmed that the man, who lives in Saint-Calixte, had no weapons in his possession.
