Man Arrested Outside Google With Baseball Bats After He’s Banned by YouTube

A Maine man angry at Google because his YouTube channel was shut down was in California with baseball bats in his car while on his way to Google headquarters, officials said.

Police arrested Kyle Long, 33, on Sunday afternoon in Mountain View, Calif., with three baseball bats in his car and his navigation set to Google’s headquarters. Iowa State Police were first alerted to Long’s behavior on Friday when he told troopers he was on his way to the company’s flagship location in Mountain View “to meet with Google after his YouTube channel had been shut down, which he claimed was resulting in him losing money.”

Long was arrested with the bats in his car. He was charged with making criminal threats and was being held on $25,000 bail.
