A Sacramento man was arrested on Wednesday after police traced back to him a disturbing Instagram video depicting an individual pointing a handgun at a police car and stating, “F—k the police.”

Marco Romero, 20, was arrested on charges of having a concealed, unregistered weapon in a vehicle and for being involved with a criminal street gang. 

The case in Sacramento is but the latest in a series of incidents within the past year in which individuals have taken to social media to threaten police officers.

Romero is being held on $250,000 bail and will appear in court on Tuesday.
