CADDO PARISH, LA (KSLA) - The man accused of posting messages to his Facebook account, threatening the safety of Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator has been arrested.

An arrest warrant was obtained by detectives on Thursday.

Detectives say 25-year-old Michael Dewayne Evans made the post on July 20 using the name "Michael Undefined Breed Evans" on Facebook.

According to police, the post read: "F*** CCC Steve Prater need to be Tha top one when tha next list drop Flat line Tha ones who really need adjusting!! We don't need them B*****s on our street say wit me!!! F*** THA POLICE."

"Anytime you threaten someone in law enforcement it will be taken very seriously by everyone in the judicial system," Prator said. "Conduct like this won't be taken lightly or tolerated especially in light of what we are seeing across the nation against our law enforcement officers."

Just before 10 p.m. Thursday, released that Evans was picked up by the U.S. Marshal's Task Force in Sacramento, California, and the Fairfield, California Police Department's Narcotics Unit.

Authorities say he was riding in a vehicle in Fairfield at the time of his arrest.

Detectives say Evans also has numerous felony arrests, including aggravated assault with a firearm.

"You never know when somebody's going to follow through on threats. It's illegal to do what this man did," said Sheriff Prator.

A judge has set Evans bond at $10 million.

Evans was booked into the Solano County Jail as a fugitive on the Caddo Sheriff's Office warrant.
