FBI investigates online threat to Green Bay PD

Posted: Updated:
GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- Officials in Green Bay are investigating a YouTube video that they say threatens a police officer.

Our affiliate, WISN, says the video seems to use a text-to-speech program that tells authorities "We are coming for you" in reaction to another video posted online showing an arrest in downtown Green Bay on April 19.

The arrest video was taken by a bystander and shows Green Bay police officer Derek Wicklund arresting a Caledonia man outside a bar.

The response video was posted on April 23 by "Anonymous."  It claims there will be retaliation against Wicklund and other officers.

The voice in the video says, "Green Bay Police Department, be prepared for the worst."
