PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. – A South Florida man has been arrested on charges that he threatened President-elect Donald Trump on Facebook.

Kevin Krohn was ordered to be held without bond by a federal judge Friday until another hearing next week.

The Secret Service arrested Krohn, 59, on Thursday at his Pembroke Pines home after agents said he posted at least two threats against Trump.

In one, he allegedly wrote that he was glad President Barack Obama hadn't seized his guns "because I see a good use for one now" over a picture of Trump.

In another comment about Trump, he allegedly wrote "he will never last long" above a picture of a man holding a sniper rifle.

If convicted, Krohn could face five years in prison.
