(CBS) PALM SPRINGS A 35-year-old man was arrested after he allegedly made terrorist threats inside a Palm Springs bar, police said.
Officers detained Haider Mohammad of Palm Springs about 8 p.m. Friday at the Hair of the Dog Bar at 238 North Palm Canyon after he allegedly said he was going to “kill all Jews,” said Palm Springs police Sgt. Mitch Spike.
According to witnesses, Mohammad also allegedly claimed to have an alliance with executed former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and to be affiliated with Al Qaeda.
Mohammad was detained on suspicion of making terrorist threats in what was called a hate crime, Spike said. FBI investigators who were contacted by Palm Springs police determined that Mohammad was not a person of interest, he said.
Mohammad was booked at the Palm Springs Jail and released after posting $25,000 bail.
