Bolieiro came to the police department Monday “to speak.” But he didn’t know that a Cobb magistrate judge had just approved a warrant for his arrest, Prosser said.
Bolieiro made no statements to police before he was sent to Cobb jail.
Prosser said that while investigating, Powder Springs police alerted all metro Atlanta law enforcement agencies of the threats Bolieiro had made to kill the next cop who talked to him.

Bolieiro posted a video to his Facebook page at 2:20 p.m. on Sunday in which he says he wasn’t actually going to kill anyone.
Here’s part of what he said in the video:
“The things I said, I understand why you’re upset. Based on the message that I left, there’s great reason for a lot of you to be concerned, so I understand if you’re upset, but I wasn’t getting through making all these other Facebook posts no one was getting my attention, no one was trying to contact me, no one was trying to do anything by doing things the,” in the video he makes air quotes, “right way.”
He claimed he was trying to expose child sex-trafficking rings and police brutality. His posts also indicate he doesn’t believe Earth is round.
A court date nor a bond amount for Bolieiro were immediately available online following his arrest.
