A violent Mexican cartel leader fought back tears as he vowed “to blow up” the government in retaliation for detaining his mother over the weekend.

Jose “El Marro” Yepez, leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima Cartel, issued the threat via social media, according to reports.

“I’m going to be a stone in your shoe. I’m going to blow up, you will see,” says Yepez in the video, according to Reuters. He is seen wearing jeans with a rifle slung over his shoulder.
