Sandy Hook truther arrested for harrassing victim’s family

Matthew Mills

Matthew Mills, 32, is a truther about Sandy Hook, 9/11 and probably whatever.

A Brooklyn man allegedly approached family members of a Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting victim after a charity race held in her memory, the Hartford Courant reported Nov. 10.

After the Victoria Soto Charity Run on Nov. 7, Matthew Mills approached the family members and told them the shooting was staged and part of a conspiracy, police said.

Police said he tried to run when they approached him. He was detained and charged with breach of peace and interfering with a police officer.

He was released after posting a $10,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Bridgeport Superior Court on the charges Nov. 17.

In 2014, Mills was also arrested for interrupting a press conference after the Super Bowl to spread his truthiness about 9/11.

Victoria Soto was one of six educators and 20 first-graders murdered by a gunman during a mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, on Dec. 14, 2012.

Soto, who was teaching her first-grade class at the time of the shooting, was shot after she threw herself in front of her students. She was posthumously awarded the Presidential Citizens Medal in 2013.
