The producer behind the anti-Islam movie "The Innocence of Muslims" has been arrested.
According to the U.S. Attorney's spokesman, 55-year-old Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was arrested today in California on a probation violation stemming from a 2010 check fraud conviction, for which he served a year in prison.
A judge has ordered Nakoula to be jailed for the violation.
How Nakoula violated his probation is unclear -- the probation report is sealed -- but under the terms of his probation, Nakoula was banned from using computers and the Internet for 5 years without prior approval.
It's possible Nakoula's arrest stems from a use of the Internet -- which would make sense because "The Innocence of Muslims" first rose to notoriety on YouTube.
