Piers Morgan troll arrested after making vile death threats against him and his son

After making murder threats against media star Piers Morgan and his son Spencer on social media, a male suspect was detained.

The suspect had tweeted; 

‘Your a marked man. Calling the police, big tech or beefing up your security isn’t going to stop us getting to you, this isn’t a threat piers, it’s a promise. Your getting killed .’

‘If you don’t get your dad, you’re getting it or your mother,’ he added in a tweet to Spencer.

The former Good Morning Britain host informed the Metropolitan Police and Greater Manchester Police about the threats, which led to the suspect’s arrest.

Despite the fact that he has been released under investigation, the suspect’s phone and tablets have been taken away for forensic analysis, according to The Sun.

The Metropolitan Police told Metro; 

‘On Wednesday, 17 February 2021, police received a report of malicious communications relating to messages sent on social media.

‘Officers have spoken with the complainant in person.

‘On 3 August a 43-year-old man was arrested in Manchester on suspicion of making threats to kill. He has been released under investigation while enquiries continue. The investigation remains ongoing.’

Piers Morgan also said; 

‘People think it’s perfectly OK to make death threats to public figures on social media but it’s not — there has to be a line drawn, especially when family members are targeted.

‘That’s why I reported it and I am grateful to the Met Police and Greater Manchester Police for taking it so seriously.’

Piers previously spoke out on the death threats, which came amid his departure from Good Morning Britain. He said his three sons, Spencer, Albert and Stanley were ‘being targeted’ online too, and had shown him ‘screenshots of venomous abuse and threats of violence towards them.
