LAS VEGAS (KSNV/CNN) - A man got on Facebook Live and threatened to blow up two places where he used to work, police said.

Clinton Wayne Warrington was apologetic Monday at Clark County Detention Center, but he did not deny the actions that landed him in jail.

"I went on Facebook Live and created a video, not really to threaten people, not to harm people, not to seem like a threat, not to seem really dangerous, but more so just to deter business from the company," Warrington said.

According to police, the suspect threatened to place explosive devices at USA Auto and Purrfect Auto locations. Warrington said he was wrongly fired.

"I had some power-hungry, prideful, (expletive) come in and tell me, that he was just going to push me around and shove me out the door, because he thought that I was useless or expendable," he said.

The man who owns the auto shops said Warrington was fired because he didn't disclose prior felonies, including assault with a deadly weapon. Since then, the owner said he and his employees have received threats from Warrington, enough to make some workers afraid.

Warrington admitted police came to his house and recovered illegal fireworks, as well as a rifle with a scope, but he claimed he doesn't know where the rifle came from.

He said the charges he faces are unfounded, because he never intended to hurt anyone.

"I hope people understand that I didn't want to harm anyone, because I had plenty of time to fulfill these actions, and I refused to," Warrington said.
