NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla. -- A North Fort Myers man has been arrested at the University of Central Florida in Orlando after he allegedly illegally accessed a website operated by the FBI-affiliated Infragard. That man's father is speaking exclusively to WINK News. He said he knew nothing about his son's arrest until we told him.
According to his father, Scott Arciszewski was in his dorm room at UCF Tuesday night, preparing for an exam set for Wednesday.
"This is a big shock to me and his mother. You're the first person to tell me," said Gary Arciszewski, Scott's father.
WINK News was the first to tell father of Scott Arciszewski that his son had been arrested for an alleged cyber attack on an FBI related website of the Tampa Bay Infragard.
"We're just now finding out, like I said you told us. My wife is on the internet with my son right now so there is not much I can say you know?" said Gary Arciszewski.
Scott Arciszewski is a graduate of North Fort Myers High, Edison College and recently transferred to University of Central Florida, where Tuesday morning, his dorm room was raided by FBI agents and he was arrested.
"The kid hasn't called me, nobody has called us, no one has told us. We're in the dark until we find out what is going on," said Gary Arciszewski.
At his parent's house in North Fort Myers, his mother spoke with her son via Facebook while WINK News was there. She told us off camera that just hours after his arrest, he was back on campus and in the library studying for an upcoming exam.
"Very, very surprised. Like i said, he's never been in any trouble. He's designed websites for different people and that but I've never known him to hack into anything," said Gary Arciszewski.
Arciszewski's parents said they're waiting to hear from their son again to find out his next court date.
