Authorities in San Antonio, Texas have arrested a man who reportedly made several threats to kill fans, players, and himself at the Steelers, Jaguars playoff game Sunday.
30-year-old Yuttana Choochongko was arrested earlier this week after he sent emails to a station in Pittsburgh detailing some aspects of his plan.
“This Sunday’s playoff game in Pittsburgh is going to be like no other. Why? Because it’s going to be my last day on this pathetic planet. So why not take some innocent lives with me? The Steelers game will be packed, and that’s when I plan on killing Steelers football players and fans before taking my own pitiful life. After all, what does a person that is going to commit suicide have to lose? Absolutely nothing. So why not take out some million dollar Steelers players before me? Sounds like a good idea. Hahahahahah” Choochongko wrote.
It was also said that Choochongko sent a similar message to Heinz Field which prompted officials there to investigate the location of the threat and send the FBI to that location. The IP address of the threats led authorities to Worldwide Clinical Trials where Choochonglo was identified. A spokesperson for the company reported that Choochonglo has participated in at least 25 trials at the company over the past seven years.
Choochonglo was arrested and charged with making a terroristic threat to the public.
