    A California man has been arrested after reportedly making violent threats to injure employees at World of Warcraft and Overwatch developer Blizzard Entertainment.
    A press release from the US Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of California today said a federal grand jury indicted the man, 28-year-old Stephen Cebula of Sacramento. He is charged with threats against Blizzard employees, officials said (via Kotaku). Blizzard is based on Irvine, California, which is around six hours by car from Sacramento.
    "According to court documents, between July 2, 2016, and July 3, 2016, Cebula transmitted messages over the internet to Blizzard Entertainment, in which he stated that he 'may or may not pay [Blizzard] a visit with an AK47 amongst some other 'fun' tools,' and 'might be inclined to 'cause a disturbance' at [Blizzard's] headquarters in California with an AK47 and a few other 'opportunistic tools,'" the report said.
    Celbula was arrested on July 12, according to the release, and is now in custody. He is set to be arraigned later this month, on July 26. The man was detained after an investigation run by the FBI.
    Should he be convicted, Ceblua faces a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
    GameSpot has contacted Blizzard for more details.
