“The FBI has arrested two alleged members of extremist anti-government group the Boogaloo Bois. Timothy Teagan, 24, of Michigan, is accused of lying about drug use while purchasing a gun. Aron McKillips, 29, of Ohio, is accused of illegal possession of a machine gun and interstate communication of threats. US authorities have warned of the potential for violence ahead of next week’s midterm elections. Mr Teagan appeared in federal court in Detroit, Michigan, on Wednesday, wearing a colourful Hawaiian-style shirt, an item of clothing often seen on supporters of the so-called Boogaloo movement. The anti-government subculture, whose followers believe a second US civil war is coming, has been linked to a series of domestic terrorism plots. Mr Teagan was arrested in a Detroit suburb on 25 October, charged with assaulting his father.” (11/03/22)
