Two conspiracy theorists were arrested this week for allegedly harassing the pastor of the South Texas church where a mass shooting occurred last November.
The San Antonio Express-News reports that Robert Ussery, 54, and Jodi Mann, 56, were arrested after threatening pastor Frank Pomeroy at his First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs. Ussery and Mann were charged with trespassing and resisting arrest.
Ussery was also charged with marijuana possession and making a terroristic threat.
Ussery, who the Express-News reported has a lengthy arrest record, "told me he was gonna hang me from a tree, and pee on me while I'm hanging," Pomeroy said.

Pomeroy's 14-year-old daughter was killed along with 25 others in the shooting.
Ussery "taunts people on the internet and in person," Sherri Pomeroy, the pastor's wife, told The Guardian. "He says, 'Produce me a death certificate,' like we have to prove something to him. He was spouting all this hatefulness."
Frank Pomeroy told the Express-News that Ussery told him, "Your daughter never even existed."
Ussery then asked to see her birth certificate or "anything to say she was here."
According to the Victim Information Notification Everyday website, the two were booked into Wilson County Jail on Monday but have since been released on bond.
Ussery runs the website Side Thorn, which claims that more than 30 shooting or bombing attacks, ranging from the Sandy Hook and Florida high school shootings to the Boston Marathon and Atlanta Olympic bombings, were staged by the U.S. government.
He and Mann frequently harass the community at First Baptist Church, The Hill reports.
