EL PASO, Texas -- A 42-year-old El Paso man has been arrested by the FBI and faces federal charges after he allegedly uploaded a racist video to YouTube threatening to kill Black Lives Matter protesters, authorities said Wednesday.

A criminal complaint filed against Manuel Flores by the U.S. Attorney's Office contends he recorded and uploaded a video entitled "N***** Lives Matter" in which he can be seen with an AR-15 assault rifle making threats against demonstrators.

At one point in the video, authorities said Flores stated that "my dream is to at least take out at least 200 N******."

The El Pasoan said he would be traveling through Dallas along Interstate 20 and dared BLM protesters to stop him, according to federal agents who said they arrested Flores in the Dallas area.

Flores is charged with posting a threatening communication over the internet, which carries a five-year prison sentence if he's convicted.
