BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Bail is denied for the blogger who broadcast his standoff with city police.

A judge ruled James MacArthur, the man behind the Baltimore Spectator, still poses a threat to the public.

Officers went to his North Baltimore home on Dec. 1 to serve a warrant related to a gun charge.

Police said MacArthur made threats online that led to an hours-long standoff. They also said they found a shotgun and ammo inside his home.

The blogger is now facing two weapons charges for illegal possession of a firearm and possessing an unregistered shotgun.
