Paul Fister has been arrested for making a threat on Oct. 6 referencing the 1 October mass shooting at the Brooklyn Bowl.

Police say that Fister was upset because an emloyee told him that he did not have the correct voucher for a Total Rewards ticket. He reportedly told the employee that he was going to "blow up this place like the guy that blew up the festival at Mandalay Bay."

Las Vegas police arrested Fister at The Cromwell. After he was read his rights, he was asked if he made the statement. Police say that Fisher responded that he has anger issues and "made a statement" but couldn't recall what he said.

He also said that he knew he should not have said what he said because of recent events.

A records check revealed that Fister was also arrested in North Carolina for making threats and had been arrested several times for driving under the influence.

He was arrested and charged with making a threat regarding an act of terrorism.
