On Tuesday, former Haitian Olympic boxer Azea Augustama was arrested and charged after threatening to shoot up his former gym in Miami, Florida.

Augustama is currently being held on $3 million bond at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami after the judge deemed him to be a “great danger” to the community.

According to NBC 6 South Florida, Augustama began issuing threats to the owners and employees of the BOXR gym early Tuesday, and within hours he was captured on surveillance video attempting to buy an AK-47 from Lucky Pawn & Jewelry in Opa-locka.

Augustama paid the $150 deposit, but after informing him that there was a seven-day waiting period, the employee noticed some serious red flags. In an Instagram clip that has since been deleted, Augustama stated that he was “not sure what’s gonna happen on the 22nd.” A previous post revealed that he had “confirmed” a “protest” at BOXR for that day.

Authorities were alerted, and within hours, Augustama was in custody.
