'Innocence of Muslims' Producer Arrested

According to TMZ, 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 in California on a probation violation stemming from a 2010 check fraud conviction, for which he served a year in prison. 
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 the use of the Internet - which would make sense because "The Innocence of Muslims" first rose to notoriety on YouTube.

A judge has ordered Nakoula to be jailed for the violation.
