Submission + - FreeBSD Core Developer Charged With Terrorizing Tenants (theregister.co.uk)

An anonymous reader writes: Prominent FreeBSD developer Kip Macy has been charged with waging a campaign of terror against people renting apartments in a six-unit building he owns. He stands accused of cutting out floor supports to retaliate against a tenant who went to court to keep from being evicted. Macy also shut off the tenant's electricity, disconnected his phone and had workers saw a hole in his living room floor. Other tenants claim the programmer-turned-landlord and his wife broke into their apartment and stole $2,000 worth of belongings. The couple was arrested Tuesday and charged with multiple felonies, including burglary, stalking, grand theft and shutting off service. Macy has been a prolific contributor to the FreeBSD project. He helped kick-start the porting of FreeBSD to Sun's UltraSparc, did early work on the Xen/FreeBSD port and has mentored younger programmers.
