A MI man has been arrested after allegedly calling CNN 22 times earlier this month, repeatedly threatening "to gun you all down" and hurling racial epithets, according to court documents unsealed Monday.

The FBI launched an investigation after the man, who is unnamed in the CBS report, reportedly called CNN 22 times about a week ago. "Fake news", the man reportedly said.

Investigators traced the call to the suburbs of Detroit and stopped the man before any mass shooting could take place.

"I'm smarter than you", the man said, according to the documents.

"I am on my way right now to gun the fuckin' CNN cast down", the caller reportedly continued.

He was released on a $10,000 bond after being charged in federal court last week with transmitting interstate communications with the intent to extort and threat to injure. The agent wrote that in September he allegedly called a mosque in Ann Arbor and made "derogatory comments" about the mosque and Muslims. If convicted, he could face up to five years in prison.
