    FILE - In this Dec. 14, 2017, file photo, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai arrives for an FCC meeting on net neutrality, in Washington.

    Prosecutors say a Southern California man is accused of threatening to kill the family of Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai.

    Markara Man, of Norwalk, was arrested Friday after he admitted that he made the threats because he was angry over the federal agency's attempt to repeal net neutrality rules and wanted to scare the chairman.

    The charges filed in federal court in Virginia allege Man sent three emails to Pai in December 2017.

    According to court documents, one of the emails read: "I will find your children and I will kill them."
