PEORIA, Ariz. -

Deputies have arrested the third suspect this year to be investigated and charged for threatening to kill Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

27-year-old Frederick Joseph Cusick allegedly made death threats against Arpaio on YouTube.

Maricopa County Sheriff's Office and FBI officials were contacted by someone who saw a comment by Cusick that allegedly said he would target Arpaio for a $2 million bounty that would be paid by a Mexican drug cartel for his murder.

According to deputies, Cusick posted on YouTube that Arpaio was a racist and that he and his "boys" had an arsenal of "powerful weapons" to ensure that Sheriff Arpaio "wouldn't be around much longer."

Multiple Mexican drug cartels have reportedly targeted the Sheriff for execution since 2007. Some of the bounties mentioned in the cases have been reported as high as $3 million.

Cusick was arrested at his home in Peoria and charged on Monday.

Arpaio's life was threatened two other times in 2013; first by a Scottsdale man in February and second by a Culver City, Calif. man in June. In addition, a mail bomb addressed to Arpaio was intercepted by Flagstaff postal workers in April.
