Major League Soccer filed a complaint on Wednesday with the Montreal police following a series of death threats in June against Impact captain Davy Arnaud.

According to the report posted to the team's website on Wednesday, the police will conduct an investigation and interview the person who tweeted on June 29 a number of "profanity-laden threats" to Arnaud moments after the team's 4-3 home loss to Colorado; Arnaud had turned the ball over late in the game which set up the goal by the Rapids. One of the tweets read, "I hope your family dies in a fire," to which Arnaud retweeted with his own message, "WOW. I know we lost and I made a mistake but I deserve this? I forgive you."

The team's statement on Wednesday said it will not tolerate this kind of behavior against any of its players or personnel:

The Impact is taking this incident very seriously and will not accept threats of any kind made by individuals in regards to its players, coaches or administrative staff, in order to ensure their safety.
