A 24-year-old Sandy Hook resident was arrested yesterday after Connecticut State Police (CSP) were notified of a threatening tweet.
On June 24 at 11:43 am, CSP received a complaint from a resident in Virginia, who reported a tweet on Twitter that has been posted at 11:39 am. The tweet said: “imma kill a cop today and when they ask me why I did it, imma tell them he was acting nervous and looked at me wrong.”
CSP-Western District Major Crime Squad was assigned to investigate the incident. They were assisted by CSP Troopers from Troop A in Southbury.
Within hours the accused was identified as Alexander Timothy Hassinger, 24, of Sandy Hook. Hassinger was located, and placed under arrest at his home.
Hassinger was charged with Breach of Peace-Second Degree and Harassment-First Degree. He has been given a court appearance on July 15 at Waterbury Superior Court.
Hassinger was released on a $10,000 Non-Surety Bond.
