A man is accused of directing threats at Las Vegas strip club Larry Flynt's Hustler Club.

Police said they've charged 33-year-old Christopher Watkins with making threats and extortion.

According to his arrest report, Watkins posted several messages on the Facebook page of Larry Flynt's Hustler Club, including one that said, "I am going to break the Orlando nightclub record."

The Associated Press reports that he threatened to blow up the strip club during a Super Bowl party if management didn't pay up.

Las Vegas police tracked Watkins through social media over several months during the investigation leading to his arrest. He was booked into the Clark County Detention Center and is scheduled to appear in court on Friday for a competency hearing.
