Chesterfield, VA—After posting questionable messages to his Facebook wall, a Chesterfield man and Marine veteran is being held for evaluation in a local veteran's hospital.

26-year-old Brandon J. Raub was confronted at his home by FBI agents on Thursday. According to Richmond FBI spokeswoman Dee Rybiski, the agency did not arrest Raub, but took him to John Randolph Medical Center for evaluation.

Raub posted a series of controversial messages to his Facebook wall, including this one, dated August 5: "If you are unaware of the great amount of evil perpetrated by the American Government I suggest you take … your head out of the sand. The day of reckoning is almost at hand."

The FBI declined to comment further to 8News.
