A Connecticut man was arrested this week after he called several schools in Newtown and told them the Sandy Hook shooting was “fake.”
Timothy Rogalski, 30, left four voice message on Sandy Hook Elementary School’s answering machine on Tuesday morning before finally speaking to an administrative assistant. Then, using his father’s name, he said he wanted to enroll his child at the school but wanted to make sure no more “fake” shootings occur.
“I just wanted to make sure that there was going to be no fake shooting on the day that I enrolled him,” court records showed Rogalski said. “I just wanted to clarify that he wouldn’t get shot by a fake Adam Lanza.”
Rogalski then gave his name as Dawn Hochsprung, the principal who was killed in the massacre.
Authorities are calling Rogalski’s actions “threatening,” an assertion he categorically denies.
“I know I may have offended people, but they were words, and I made no threats,” Rogalski said. “I wasn’t going to do anything.”
Rogalski is currently being held on $50,000 bond and he is set to undergo a psychological screening. He is due to appear in court next on April 22.
