Sandy Hook families seek Alex Jones arrest after 2nd no-show


Associated Press

Relatives of some victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting are asking a Connecticut judge to order the arrest of Infowars host Alex Jones for missing a court-ordered deposition this week. The request on Friday comes as part of their lawsuit against Jones for calling the 2012 massacre that killed 20 children and six educators in Newtown, Connecticut, a hoax. Jones failed to show at a deposition Wednesday and Thursday in his hometown of Austin, Texas. He cited a health problem including vertigo that he says turned out to be a sinus infection. A judge did not immediately rule on the arrest request. Jones called attempts to have him arrested “absolutely preposterous” on his web show Friday.
