A Florida man was arrested Monday after he frequently harassed a Sandy Hook shooting victim’s father and released his personal information online.

According to the New York Post, Wolfgang Halbig,73, was arrested in Lake County and charged with unlawfully possessing personal information of Leonard Pozner. Pozner’s 6-year-old son Noah was one of the 20 victims who were killed during the Sandy Hook school shooting in Newtown Connecticut in 2012. Authorities reported that Halbig was a former contributor to the conspiracy site InfoWars and allegedly emailed Pozner’s social security number, date of birth, and other confidential information to law enforcement and media companies within the country.

Halbig also harassed other families trying to prove that the children who died in the shooting were actually alive and leaked their information online. Pozner became his latest victim after he warned families about Halbig.

“For five years, he has used my most personal and private details to incentivize and enable other hoaxers and conspiracy theorists to hunt, abuse and terrorize myself and my family,”
