BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Louisiana State Police say a Baton Rouge man was jailed for posting online videos threatening violence against Baton Rouge police and a former Ku Klux Klan leader who is running for the Senate.

Online records show 22-year-old Anthony Moore was in the East Baton Rouge Parish jail Thursday on charges of terrorizing and cyberstalking. Bond was set at $15,000.

Sgt. Jared Sandifer said Moore was arrested Wednesday after investigators were made aware of two YouTube videos. In one, police say Moore threatened Baton Rouge police in retaliation for the police shooting of Alton Sterling. In the other, they say Moore threatened former Klan leader and U.S. Senate candidate David Duke.

Sandifer said there is no evidence Moore actually plotted to carry out attacks.
