PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A 16-year-old Canadian boy has been arrested yet again on charges of threatening to kill Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

The suspect has now threatened to kill Arpaio five separate times during the past eight months.

The teen's fifth threat against the sheriff appeared online at the sheriff's website. It, like the other four, was violent and dangerous, MCSO said.

"Arpaio, I have not forgotten you. You think you are tough s***? I'm going to stab you 100 times before I decapitate you, you grease ball ***.  I'm f*** serious. Your hours are numbered my friend. You're gonna die today, not tomorrow."

The teen's first threat against Arpaio was made in July 2013 and directed at his wife, children and grandchildren. The teen said he would murder Arpaio and his family and bomb his house.

The second threat came in October when the teen promised to open fire on the sheriff and his wife and make sure the sheriff simply "vanishes."

In the third threat, made in November, the suspect said he was planning to kill the sheriff with a Glock handgun.

The fourth threat occurred in January 2014 and came shortly after his release from a psychiatric facility near Alberta, Canada, where the court had ordered him to a 30-day stay.

The teen emailed the sheriff's website and said that he "will never stop until I am put away for good. I hate you so much that I will travel to Arizona to chop off your b**ls off with a meat cleaver and turn you into a woman."

The suspect is now behind bars for violating his probation. The teen has been charged with three counts of breach of probation and one count of threatening, according to MCSO.
