Federal prosecutors say a sports gambler is facing up to 5 years in prison after sending graphic threats to MLB players over social media in 2019. Scary stuff...
"I will cut up your family ... Dismember [them] alive."
The man's name is Benjamin Tucker Patz, a 24-year-old from Napa, Calif. who federal investigators claim is a sports better who made violent threats to professional athletes during and after their games.
According to a plea agreement between Patz and prosecutors, Patz pled guilty on Wednesday to one count of sending a threat across state lines.
Prosecutors say he sent disturbing messages to both the Chicago White Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays on July 20, 2019.
In the docs, prosecutors say toward the end of the Sox-Rays game ... Patz went on Instagram and fired off messages that included threats to "sever" a player's neck.
Some of the messages prosecutors say Patz sent included, "I will enter your home while you sleep ... And sever your neck open."
Others, prosecutors say, read, "I will kill your entire family ... Everyone you love will soon cease."
