The FBI has arrested a man who it said planned to bomb Cleveland's Fourth of July celebrations and then stand by and watch "it go off," federal officials said Monday.An undercover FBI agent helped Pitts pick the location for his planned attack, near a planned fireworks show and multiple U.S. government buildings, the FBI said.Pitts also suggested giving the children of military personnel remote control cars packed with explosives during the parade so the kids would unwittingly detonate the bombs, the FBI said.Authorities first began watching Pitts in 2017, after he made Facebook posts threatening violence against the U.S., FBI Special Agent Stephen Anthony said.Officials said Pitts is a U.S. citizen who had been radicalized in the United States and had no information that Pitts had traveled out of the country.
