(CBS) – “Don’t get mad — get even” is really not good advice.

A suburban man who got steamed because of a parking ticket in Chicago is now charged with threatening a public official in a YouTube rant.

Prosecutors say Michael Dixon tried to disguise himself in the video, even adding some special effects.

They say his profane rant against a hearing officer urged viewers to blow up a city building, put explosives on the officer’s car and attack other hearing officers.

Police arrested Dixon yesterday at his County Club Hills home.

His alleged tirade was triggered by a $50 ticket he got on Milwaukee Avenue.
