A 26-year-old eastern Missouri man is accused of posting a video online of himself licking items at a Walmart store this month.
“Who’s afraid of the coronavirus?” Cody Pfister, 26, said in a video he later posted to social media. Warrenton police said in a statement the department had been contacted by people in the Netherlands, Ireland and the United Kingdom.
“We take these complaints very seriously and would like to thank all of those who reported the video so the issue could be addressed,” police said in the statement. Pfister was taken into custody this week, and Warren County prosecutors charged him with a terrorist threat.
Pfister was booked into the Warren County jail without bond. He has previous convictions for burglary, theft of a firearm, drug possession and driving while intoxicated.
