Judge Fernando Andreu did not immediately bring formal charges against Jose Perez Bautista, but seized his passport and ordered him to report to a police station twice a day.
Andreu announced his decision in an order released Thursday, hours after the Pope arrived for a youth festival. The pontiff is to leave Sunday.
An anti-Pope demonstration was held Wednesday night in Madrid. Police had arrested the Mexican on Tuesday because of threats he made on the Internet against anti-Pope demonstrators due to take part in that rally.
