Man Arrested For Sending Death Threats To Blizzard

A Sacramento man has been arrested and charged with sending multiple death threats to Blizzard Entertainment, the developers of World of Warcraft and Overwatch. Stephen Cebula, 28, is accused of sending messages "over the internet" on July 2 and 3 saying 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'."

He was arrested on July 12 following an FBI investigation, and if found guilty faces a maximum penalty of five years gaol and a $US250,000 ($333,560) fine.


    Im curious as to the reason this guy was so cheesed off he would think threats like that would result in anything... other than his arrest.

    What game? Whats the trigger?
    Banned for cheating? Nerfing his favourite toon / exploit? Removing Tracers butt pose? Removing real money auction house? Too much RNG in Hearthstone? Too many rare mount runs fried his brain over 10 years in wow?

      Someone probably said 'GG' to him at the end of an Overwatch match.

        nothing genuinely hurts more than when a player says "rekt" right after you lose

        such toxic behaviour and atrocious spelling. i've actually stopped playing overwatch altogether as i can't handle such ruthless toxicity.

      All it takes is one bad Yogg round to send a person over the edge

    wow, there are some unstable losers out there.

    I know diablo3 has been homogenized down to an unacceptable level .. but this has gone too far.

      I liked D3 a heap this latest season and completed ALL the task and I'm a casual in terms of play time.
