Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the alleged filmmaker behind the video that sparked protests across the Muslim world, has been arrested in Los Angeles.
“I can confirm he’s in custody, scheduled to make a court appearance as we speak, in federal court in downtown LA,” Thom Mrozek of the United States Attorney’s Office said, giving no further details.
The exact nature of the court appearance is unclear, because the federal court documents have been sealed. Officials have been investigating whether he may have violated probation terms for a previous offence.
