A court document says two other men — Darren Arness Jackson, 50, also of West Palm Beach, and Dayne Atani Christian, 31, of Lake Park, Florida — provided weapons and firearms instruction to Hubbard, in the belief that he was preparing to travel overseas to join and fight for the terror group.

The FBI says Jackson drove Hubbard to the airport and was arrested a short time later. Christian was arrested at his place of work.

A confidential FBI source was in close touch with the men for at least a year.
