MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A man is in jail after Miami Beach police say he made anti-semitic threats against people outside an ice cream shop.
According to police, Lamont Collins began yelling and threatening people in the area of Lincoln Road and Michigan Avenue on Sunday.
A tweet by the Anti-Defamation League of Florida reads, “Horrified that a Jewish man and his son were subject to #antisemitic threats in Miami Beach on the 4th night of Hanukkah.”
Collins left before police arrived but he was found a few hours later and arrested.
When officers searched his backpack, they found two hunting knives.
Collins is facing charges of carrying a concealed weapon, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest without violence.
He is being held on $3,500 bond.
The State Attorney’s Office will review the case to see if he’ll also be charged with a hate crime.
