IRS agent Albert Bront threatened to kill a group of U.S. Treasury agents when they tried to search his home earlier this week.

Bront, 49, screamed, “I’m going to kill all of you!” at the agents, who had shown up at the doorstep of his Valencia, Calif., home on Monday with a search warrant. Bront learned that he was being investigated for filing false tax returns, according to a local newspaper, The Signal, of Santa Clarita Valley.

When the agents tried to serve the warrant, Bront tried to rush back inside his home, where he kept three loaded guns, but a Treasury agent aimed a gun at him and another drew out a baton. After his arrest, he kicked the front seat of the law enforcement vehicle and pounded the door with his elbow before telling the agents he didn’t mean it when he threatened to kill them.

Bront was ordered held without bail. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for July 28 in Los Angeles.
