Officials charged Matthew Lee Rupert, 28, with civil disorder, carrying on a riot and possession of unregistered destructive devices after he allegedly handed out the explosives last week and encouraged people to throw them at law enforcement.

In videos that were allegedly posted to his Facebook account on Friday, Rupert is heard saying “He’s throwing my bombs” and, “He’s going to bomb the police with them,” after handing a device to a rioter. He’s later heard saying “good shot, my boy” after an audible explosion.

Rupert was arrested Sunday in Chicago after he allegedly violated the city’s curfew. Authorities found several destructive devices when they searched his vehicle, as well as a hammer, a heavy-duty flashlight and cash, according to a Justice Department statement.
