Police: Man offered reward, made death threat on police officer in Facebook post

PINELLAS PARK, Fla. - A man who disagreed with a police officer about a traffic stop is under arrest. In a Facebook post following the incident, Bruce Allen Santee II offered $100 to anyone who would kill the officer, according to Pinellas Park police.

The officer was off duty at the time of the traffic stop around 2 a.m. Sunday.  He called the department to report that Santee made disparaging remarks, including a threat of assault.

Santee later logged into his Facebook account and made the $100 offer. He identified the officer by name, police said.

Police did not release the officer's identity.

Santee turned himself in Monday afternoon and was arrested on a charge of written threats to kill or do bodily harm.
