Alan and Daphne Crawford from Arkansas were arrested on suspicion of making terrorist threats.
The US couple who recently converted to Islam were also reported to have made similar threats to other strangers on the same day.
After the San Bernardino terror attacks the couple had claimed that they were subjected to discrimination in a shopping venue. They claimed the shop personnel asked them to leave the shopping venue because they were Muslim.
Alan and Daphne Crawford were in a restaurant when Alan Crawford allegedly said of the waitress 'Only a Christian will treat them like that'
Daphne Crawford then said to the waitress 'People like you are the reason we kill'
The couple were later arrested and booked before being released on bail.
The FBI are now investigating the couple after it surfaced that they had also made terrorist threats and remarks on social media.
This incident comes in the wake of US presidential candidate Donald Trump's call for ban on Muslims entering America.
A campaign that has been met with approval in some quarters and harsh criticism in others.
