    British police say they’ll arrest former News of the World editor Andy Coulson Friday over the phone-hacking scandal that’s rocked Rupert Murdoch’s tabloid, according to The Guardian. Coulson is suspected of knowing about and having directly been involved in hacking mobile phones during his editorship at the News of the World. The Guardian also claims that a second arrest of another senior journalist will be made in the next few days. Coulson resigned as Prime Minister David Cameron’s director of communications in January, and the arrest will be embarrassing for the administration.
