According to the seven-page federal complaint, Cook threatened a Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics agent on his Facebook page.

The FBI says Cook went on a tangent against the drug agent who arrested him at his R&L Motel on drug charges in 2018.

Despite his acquittal on the state drug charges last year, the FBI says Cook still obsessed over the charges and posted the home address of the drug agent to social media.
