ORLANDO, Fla. - An Orlando man was arrested after officers said he threatened to shoot and kill officers at the Florida Highway Patrol Orlando Regional Communications Center.

On Thursday night, officers said Matt Skytta made threats against personnel at the Florida Highway Patrol station and said he was going to “spray the parking lot with an AK-47.”

Skytta allegedly also said he was “out front of the station with a back pack loaded with C-4 and that everyone was going to die.”

Skytta allegedly called again and said that it was a good day to die, he had two .45s and that he would not miss.

Officers said Skytta called and claimed to have AK-47s and would kill every officer that came through the door.

Later, officers located Skytta at the Ambassador Inn on W. Colonial Drive.

They found a crack pipe in his pocket and a fake hand grenade on a dresser in Skytta's room.

They also found a fake handgun in a drawer.

They said Skytta made several remarks that he had been calling the Florida Highway Patrol all night.
