A man who used to live in Hawaii has been arrested in Tennessee and charged with threatening the lives of Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) and Rep Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), reports KHON.

Keahiokahonua Stewart, 36, was arrested at his home in Murfreesboro, Tennessee near Nashville.

He’s accused of sending threatening emails and posting intimidating videos on his Instagram account.

Authorities said he wrongly believed someone had stolen his social security number while he was stationed in Korea. He demanded the Department of Defense award him 100 percent disability and $50 billion.

Investigators say in one Instagram video he posted, he stated he would fly to Hawaii with a rifle and two handguns.

He faces as much as 15 years in prison if convicted.
