The brother of a man who blew himself up outside an Oklahoma football game two years ago has been sentenced to a little more than three years in a federal prison for threatening an F.B.I. agent.

In sentencing Thomas C Hinrichs, U.S. District Judge Robert E. Blackburn called the 28-year-old quoting -- a time bomb for our community.

Authorities say they found an AK 47 assault rifle and other paramilitary gear in Hinrich's car when they arrested him last November.

He was convicted in June.

The F.B.I. investigated Hinrich shortly after his brother,Joel Hinrichs blew himself up October first, 2005.

Investigators feared terrorism but later determined Joel Hinrichs committed suicide.
