SIOUX FALLS (AP) - Bond has been set for a South Dakota man who was asked to leave an anti-Islam event after livestreaming himself brandishing weapons and making threats to the public.

Ehab Jaber appeared via teleconference in Lincoln County court Tuesday where bond was set at $2,500 cash. The 45-year-old Sioux Falls man is charged with one count of making terrorist threats.

The Argus Leader reports Jaber's charges stem from an incident that occurred outside an April 9 event titled "Sabotaging America: Islam's March Toward Supremacy."

In a video posted to Facebook Live, Jaber stood in the back of the room holding a Quran until he was asked to leave. The video continued in his car, where Jaber flashed several firearms. Police say FBI agents and local officers who interviewed Jaber concluded he didn't pose a serious threat.
