Christopher Cantwell, aka ‘the crying nazi’, has been arrested by the FBI for making interstate threats online.

Neo-Nazi leader Chris Cantwell, popularly known as the “crying Nazi”, was arrested in New Hampshire on two federal charges related to making interstate threats, according to The Daily Beast.

Cantwell allegedly attempted to pressure someone to reveal personal information about a Cantwell enemy. Using Telegram, an encrypted messaging app that has become a haven for white supremacists, Cantwell sought “personal identifying information” about a man known by the “on-line pseudonym ‘VM,’” according to the indictment.

“So if you don’t want me to come and f*** your wife in front of your kids, then you should make yourself scarce,” Cantwell wrote in a June 16 message. “Give me Vic, it’s your only out.”

Last July, Cantwell used Telegram to threaten a lawyer suing him over his actions in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a deadly white supremacist rally was held in 2017. He called the woman anti-Semitic slurs and claimed that he and his followers “would have a lot fo f***ing fun with her.”

Cantwell has been banned from Virginia for five years, after he pepper-sprayed two activists and plead guilty to assault charges.
