    Default Armed Idiot Threatens Police Via MySpace, Equally Bright Family Refutes Evidence

    MySpace threats against police lead to arrest

    BY DIANA MOSKOVITZ
    dmoskovitz@MiamiHerald.com

    Broward County, Florida - A 25-year-old from Margate was arrested Wednesday after police said he threatened, on his MySpace.com page, to go on a shooting spree at the Coral Springs Police Department.



    Local moron and wannabe gangsta Jean Carlos Vargas, 25, of Margate was arrested after police received information that he posted a threatening message on a MySpace page stating that he was going to go on a shooting spree at CSPD.

    Jean Carlos Vargas was booked into Broward County's main jail on Wednesday night, charged with writing threats to kill and do bodily harm.

    Coral Springs police got a tip about the threat Wednesday morning, spokesman Sgt. Joe McHugh said. They tracked down Vargas Wednesday afternoon and arrested him, McHugh said.

    McHugh wouldn't detail what Vargas told police, but he did say that Vargas made the spontaneous statement, ``I did something really stupid.''

    Vargas has one prior arrest, in 2006, for discharging a firearm, according to Broward court records. He pleaded no contest.

    According to family members, Vargas had been working in a warehouse but had recently been let go and was looking for work.

    Here is the account McHugh gave of what happened Wednesday:

    In the morning, Coral Springs police got a tip about the threat on Vargas' MySpace page. Police found the page and saw the written threats, along with a picture of Vargas pointing a gun straight ahead.

    ''It actually said that he was going to go on a shooting spree at CSPD,'' McHugh said.

    ARMED OFFICERS

    Investigators connected the page to Vargas and began searching for him. Meanwhile, armed officers were stationed outside all police and fire department buildings in Coral Springs.

    ''Not only a threat like that but a picture with a gun in his hand -- it definitely raises everybody's alert level,'' McHugh said.

    Police found Vargas at about 3:30 p.m., and pulled him over. Vargas cooperated with investigators, giving them a statement, but McHugh wouldn't elaborate. .

    Vargas also told police where they could find the gun pictured on the MySpace page, McHugh said.

    By Wednesday night, his MySpace page was gone. McHugh said it was taken down and submitted as evidence.

    FAMILY REACTION

    Meanwhile, family members struggled to understand the situation.

    Vargas was a nice kid who hadn't known what he was doing, said his brother, José Vargas, 20.

    Of police allegations that Jean Vargas had threatened to shoot police, José Vargas said: "He would never do that. It was just a joke...He's innocent.''

    So in the past week we've had a teacher busted for sex with a student and a wannabe gangsta threatening our police station.

    Makes me proud to be a Coral Springs resident.

    Well, considering how many of these assholes are from some other part of the country, I wouldn't doubt it.

    Yep. You could live in a mansion and if you declare bankruptcy in Florida, you still keep your home, creditors can't touch it. Shady charcters come to Florida, out all their money into a house and then declare bankruptcy to screw over whoever they owe money to. If OJ had been living in Florida when he lost the civil suit to the Goldmans, he would have kept his house.
