Vegas Man Accused of Video Post Threatening Terror Attack

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas man who police say posed in battlefield gear and assault weapons for an internet video saying he intended to shoot “Satanists” and “homosexuals” is due to face a judge this week on terror threat and conspiracy charges.

A defense attorney for Bryce Matthew Cuellar didn’t immediately respond Tuesday to messages ahead of a court appearance Thursday.

The 24-year-old Cuellar could be facing up to 20 years in state prison. He remains jailed on $150,000 bail.

Police say Google alerted authorities July 1 to the YouTube post, and Cuellar was arrested hours later.

By then, he’d attacked his wife.

He pleaded no contest July 6 to misdemeanor domestic violence.

Prosecutor Michael Dickerson says the felony case was delayed while Cuellar was evaluated by doctors who found him fit for trial.
