The woman whos under investigation for making a Twitter threat against Dearborn apologized.

A local military veteran has apologized for making threats against the city of Dearborn on social media.

Following the Paris terrorist attack Friday, Sarah Beebe tweeted: "Dearborn, MI has the highest Muslim population in the United States. Let's F- that place up at send a message to ISIS. We're coming."

Her threat against residents of Dearborn ignited a firestorm on social media and prompted a police investigation.

Beebe now says she expressed her anger in the wrong way and has deleted the post.

"I understand that I have made people very angry," she said. "They had a right to be angry and I had just received so many threats. I just thought it was safer to delete all of my social media."

Beebe also apologized: "I am sorry to the entire city of Dearborn and anyone who is affected by my ignorance by my post on Twitter I would never wish ill on any one especially because of their religious beliefs and that off the cuff post will haunt me the rest of my life. I am very sorry and I hope the people of Dearborn can see that I screwed up. And I am truly from the heart sorry."
