Alex Kompothecras, one of the show's cast members, allegedly claimed he was friends with one of the men shown in a recent video featuring a speeding boat and shark seen being dragged behind it.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ. police in the FL town where "Siesta Key" is shot were contacted by some of the cast members about online threats, some deadly in nature.

Dr. Kompothecras, who is a popular local chiropractor, was frustrated by the cancelation of the party. (Photos below, the last one is with Alex.) Siesta Key airs Mondays at 10pm on MTV.

"I had absolutely nothing to do with the shark video", he wrote, according to Rolling Stone. "Yes he's a friend of mine, but no I don't agree with what he did". Following the controversy, the show's premiere party was canceled.

Since reports of the death threats and the canceled party have surfaced, the "Boycott" page administrators have discouraged their followers from posting personal information of those involved in the video - one man, Michael Wenzel, was identified in the Miami Herald as being the main perpetrator of the animal abuse.

The names of the men were not immediately released by investigators.

Florida Governor Rick Scott called the video "heinous and sickening", according to CBS 12.

Scott went on to say he encourages the FWC to "review Florida's fishing regulations and state statutes to ensure such inhumane acts are strictly prohibited".
