According to Brandon Raub’s mother, the FBI, Secret Service and Chesterfield County PD came to their door, questioned her son about his Facebook posts, then handcuffed and took him to John Randolph Psychiatric Hospital in Hopewell, Va.
Raub’s mother said he returned a year ago from tours in Afghanistan and Iraq and did not suffer from PTSD.
The Chesterfield PD said that the situation “was an FBI matter and we were just there to assist them” but did not provide an official reason why Raub was detained.
Raub’s mother said that an FBI agent told her Raub was “arrested by the Chesterfield police department” because he “assaulted an officer and resisted arrest,” then asked her if Raub “was having any issues relating to people” and told her that “the threats he was making were terrorist in nature.”
When asked the Chesterfield PD said Raub has not been charged with resisting arrest and assaulting an officer.

Raub’s mother said he was told that he will see a judge on Monday but has not been told what he has been charged with and has not been read his rights.
