Man charged with hacking city sites in Arizona, Wisconsin

Posted:

PHOENIX (AP) -- A man has been indicted on charges of hacking into government websites in Arizona and Wisconsin.

Randall Charles Tucker of Apache Junction, Arizona, was charged in a cyberattack that came three days after a police shooting of an unarmed man in Madison, Wisconsin, and interrupted communications equipment for emergency workers there.

Tucker is charged with intentional damage to protected computers and threatening damage to protected computers for allegedly attacking municipal computer systems in March 2015 in Madison and two Phoenix suburbs, Chandler and Mesa.

He also is accused of attacking the Washington, D.C.-based News2Share site in late 2014 after it failed to run a video he had provided.

It's unknown whether Tucker has an attorney.
