Is this computer geek a hacker who harassed an FBI agent, or a hero trying to secure the internet?

The Justin Shafer story keeps getting more bizarre. He has been arrested not for hacking, as Patterson accused him of dong, but for harassing an FBI agent. Here is my article from June 2016 when he was raided by the FBI.

Now this from Dallas News:

Shafer is behind bars in the Dallas area not because he is accused of violating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. The 37-year-old computer technician is charged in federal court with cyber stalking for the alleged online harassment of a Dallas FBI agent who investigated him.

Here is a link to the story from another source, DataBreaches.net

I have met and exchanged some thoughts with Justin. He does not seem to me to be a criminal however he does enjoy tweeking the big boys like Schein and Patterson. My initial reaction is that this is a travesty and what has been done to Justin is disturbing. However I do not really know the facts and am interested in learning more.
