A South Bend man has been arrested and charged after posting violent threats on social media over the weekend.

Isaiah Beavers, 26, was arrested Saturday afternoon before a Black Lives Matter South Bend Peace Rally that was being held in response to the recent police-involved shootings in Louisiana and Minnesota.

An investigator learned of the Facebook posts and immediately began to investigate.

According to the affidavit, several comments by Beavers indicated possible violence including efforts to intimidate people or to destroy property.

A pre-trial detention hearing has been set for Wednesday.
