A California man is wanted for threatening to kill Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

An arrest warrant was issued for 22-year-old Caesar Nunez, who's from Culver City, CA.

Sheriff's detectives traveled to Los Angeles to work with officers there to try to track down Nunez.

Nunez' threatened on April 24, "I want to personally blow Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's head off," according to an MCSO news release.

During an interview with deputies, Nunez admitted to the threat, saying he was driven to write it because of the illegal immigration rhetoric surrounding Arpaio.
