Shawn Christy, 26, was taken into custody Friday afternoon, the U.S. Marshals Service told WPXI.

The federal agency said Christy was arrested in Mifflin Township, near Columbus, by marshals and task force members from Ohio and Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania warrants issued for Christy allege burglary, probation violation and failure to appear for an aggravated assault case.

In early June, Christy allegedly made threats against Trump, police and a district attorney on Facebook.

In the ensuing weeks and months, law enforcement officials said he led them on a chase through several states.

Authorities said Christy stole a truck Sunday from the area of McAdoo, Pennsylvania, and fled after abandoning it Sunday on Interstate 71 in the Mansfield area, about 65 miles north of Columbus.
