Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- U.S. Marshals arrested a Washington County, Ind. man Wednesday after he allegedly threatened a sheriff's deputy.

Police and federal marshals arrested 26-year-old Dustin W. Spicer around 5 p.m. April 2, according to a news release from the Indiana State Police post in Sellersburg

The arrest came after Spicer allegedly made threats through a social media website that he intended to do bodily harm to a Washington County deputy after a member of his family was arrested. Police say the threats began around March 1; that's when the Washington County Sheriff's Department requested Indiana State Police to investigate.

Officers from the Indiana State Police and Washington County Sheriff's Department served a search warrant at a residence in the 2900 block of Mt. Tabor Road in Salem, but Spicer wasn't there.

On March 10, a warrant was issued for Spicer's arrest. He managed to avoid police until officers caught up with him on Wednesday.

Spicer is charged with intimidation, a Class D felony.
