Update on Wiesel Attack

N.J. man arrested in attack on Wiesel supposedly working alone...
"A man accused of roughing up Nobel laureate and Holocaust scholar Elie Wiesel at a San Francisco hotel earlier this month was arrested Saturday, authorities said.

Montgomery Township police arrested Eric Hunt, 22, of Sussex County, N.J., at 1:30 p.m. EST Saturday. He faces charges that include attempted kidnapping, false imprisonment, elder abuse, stalking, battery and the commission of a hate crime, according to San Francisco police.

He was being held without bail in the Somerset County Jail in New Jersey, awaiting extradition to San Francisco. "

Of course, the police believe that Hunt is not connected to any larger organization... Yeah, his hatred for scholars of the Holocaust just developed out of the air. Yeah, right.
