VERNON PARISH, La. (VPSO) - A Leesville man was arrested on February 6 after a threatening video was posted to social media.

VPSO deputies went to Thibodeaux’s residence to make contact with him regarding the threatening post. Upon contact with the deputies, Thibodeaux continued to act in an erratic manner and they took him into custody.
