Overview

Daniel Larson's Federal Arrest, also known as Daniel Larson Federal Charges, refers to the federal arrest of lolcow TikToker Daniel Larson in late April 2024. Larson was charged with seven counts, consisting of six counts of "Use or Threatened Use of Explosive" and one count of "Interstate Communication of Threats." Larson had been arrested by local Colorado authorities multiple times in late 2023 and early 2024, however, Larson's federal charges were the most severe which, if convicted, had the potential of putting Larson in jail for multiple decades. Discourse and reactions to Larson's federal arrest surfaced across social media sites like TikTok and Reddit, among others. Many shared Larson's mugshot and posted memes about Federal Agent Daniel MacDougall who was tasked with Larson's case and arrest.

Redditor[5] Extension_Nerve_1947 shared a post to /r/Daniellarson on May 2nd, 2024, that was part four of their series "Everything you need to know about Danny in jail" in which they linked a Google Sheets[6] document called the "Danny Threat Tracker." The spreadsheet compiled every alleged threat Larson had made on social media, predominantly on TikTok and YouTube via YouTube Community Posts.

For example, a month prior, on April 9th, X[7] user @SubToOptimus tweeted a video of Larson repeatedly shouting, "Bomb you!" (shown below).


Prior Arrests

Before Larson's federal indictment in late April 2024, he'd already been arrested multiple times by various sheriff's departments in Colorado. The slew of arrests started in July 2023, when Larson was arrested at a Walmart in Colorado, resulting in his first-ever court hearing.

Shortly after, in September 2023, Larson was arrested again on the campus of the University of Colorado-Boulder. In the following months, Larson was arrested after the "Olive Garden Incident" and again in Aurora, Colorado after he failed to appear at court hearings.
