The Long Beach Police Department says in a statement that detectives arrested 27-year-old Jose Rafael Guzman of Huntington Park, a Los Angeles suburb, on Monday.
He was booked for criminal threats and threatening a public officer.
Chief Robert Luna said in a statement Tuesday that the department takes "all potential threats of violence very seriously."
