18-year-old Pharrell Smith of Alabama was arrested earlier this month and will face a terror charge after threatening to shoot Black people at the Opelika Fair. 

The threats were posted on Facebook last month, under the moniker ‘Dylann Cruz’ and featured a Confederate flag.

WRBL reports:

“The department takes threats like these very seriously and immediately began an investigation. Officials were able to trace the social media account to a residence in Lafayette, AL. Through the investigation, 18-year-old Pharrell Smith was developed as a suspect. On 10/06/2022, the Lafayette Police Department arrested Smith on unrelated charges,” said Chief Shane Healey.


Among the “unrelated charges” Smith was arrested on include discharging a firearm in the city and reckless endangerment. Smith will face a terroristic threat charge in Lee county Alabama.
