SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A car enthusiast charged with threatening a San Mateo County sheriff’s deputy on social media has been sentenced to four months in jail and three years of probation.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports (https://bit.ly/1KAu8bk) that 23-year-old Gervacio Ronquillo Jr. on Thursday entered a no-contest plea to the charges.

The unnamed officer gave him a ticket for illegally modifying the exhaust system on his Honda Civic.

Authorities say Ronquillo later posted a picture of the ticket on his Facebook page with a derogatory remark about police and implied in the comments that he planned to run over the deputy.

They also say Ronquillo posted comments about the officer on Instagram that said “One day he will get the BULLET” and “I’m gonna plant a timing bomb on his squad car soon.”
