NewsChannel 3 has learned new details about a former Marine arrested and hospitalized over his Facebook posts.

A judge ordered Brandon Raub to be released from a state psychiatric hospital.

The judge said law enforcement had no grounds to hold Raub.

The Chesterfield veteran's case went viral when a YouTube video of his arrest began circulating.

The FBI had Raub questioned after comments he made about a revolution and his belief that the government was behind the 911 attacks.

Raub should be out of the hospital some time tonight.
