BERLIN (AP) — German investigators say they have arrested a third suspect in an attempt to blackmail the family of former Formula 1 race driver Michael Schumacher. The 52-year-old man, who was detained on Thursday in a town near Wuppertal in western Germany, had worked for the family as a security officer. That’s according to German news agency dpa, citing prosecutors. Prosecutors in the case arrested two men last month and said the pair, a father and son, had told employees of the family that they were in possession of files that the family wouldn’t want published.
