A man who did not like the fact that he was being kicked out of his mother’s home threatened to eat and kill the family of the arresting police officer and force him to watch as he does it, according to police in Massachusetts.

Orange police said that they have arrested 26-year-old Jeffrey R. Liimatainen after being accused of possessing drugs and assaulting police officers.

Liimatainen has been charged with assault and battery on a police officer, assault with a dangerous weapon, threatening to commit a crime, and possession of a Class E drug.

He was booked into the Franklin County House of Correction and released without bail.

According to the police investigation, on Sunday, at around 10:30 p.m., Officer Adam R. Cooley and Officer Jonathan Cole were sent to the home of Liimatainen’s mother located on West River Street.

The woman told police that she wanted her son out of the home because he was very intoxicated.

Liimatainen told the officers that he wished to go to his friend’s house.

When the friend refused to take Liimatainen, he was placed under arrest.

Liimatainen became angry and spit at the officers as well as in the police cruiser and police station.

He then punched Officer Cooley.

Liimatainen threatened Officer Cooley and his family.

Liimatainen warned the officer that he would find his family and murder them.

He would then tie up Officer Cooley and force him to watch as he eats the dead bodies.
