POLK COUNTY, FL. (THECOUNT) — Five months after a federal grand jury indicted California man, Eugene “Gene” Huelsman, for threatening to kill Rep. Matt Gaetz and his kids, the Department of Justice have finally made the arrest.

The DOJ have arrested the longtime television and film cameraman for leaving a threatening voicemail for Gaetz on January 9, 2021.


During the message, Huelsman told the Florida Republican to watch his back, and his children too, because he was coming for them.

“I’m going to put a bullet in you and I’m going to put a bullet in one of your f—king kids too,” Huesman said, adding, “I hate you.”

Gaetz recently married and have an adopted adult son.

According to Amgreatness, Huelsman has done camera work for Saturday Night Live, Late Night With Conan O’Brien, the Ellen DeGeneres Show, and numerous T.V. series, award shows, and specials, including FOX’s “New Year’s Eve Toast & Roast 2021.”
