Anti-Islamic Film Maker Nakoula Basseley Nakoula has been taken to the Cerritos Sheriff’s Station by law enforcement officials just after midnight.

Nakoula is reported to be the film maker who was behind the video being blamed for sparking violent unrest in at least two dozen countries in the  Middle East and North Africa.

Nakoula was escorted by deputies from his Park Street home as members of the media took photos of one of the most sought after people in the world.

Nakoula is not under arrest, and is not currently being charged with any crimes, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.  He is being interviewed by federal probation officials at the Cerritos Sheriff Station that is located around a mile from his home.

Los Cerritos Community Newspaper is at the Cerritos Sheriff’s Station and will have updates as they develop.

NBC4 in Los Angeles provided a photo of Nakoula to Los Cerritos Community Newspaper.   He was wearing a pair of glasses, a hat, and a white scarf to cover his identity.

A neighborhood fears for it’s safety and this poster is complaining about the quality of a photograph?

Or perhaps the hoisting of an Islamist flag over the U.S. Embassy in Cairo? No. For that they stuck to diplomatic speak. For the president, the harshest language was:  “I strongly condemn the outrageous attack.”  For Clinton it was that the US is heartbroken and she condemned “this senseless act of violence.” But “disgusting and reprehensible” and “truly abhorrent ” were reserved for an amateurish and silly film by… Read more »
