Alleged Filmmaker Interviewed by Police

A California man widely believed to be Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was taken in by police shortly after midnight Saturday to be interviewed about his involvement in an anti-Muslim film, Innocence of Muslims, that has sparked widespread violence throughout the Middle East. He was not arrested or detained, but taken in voluntarily to speak with police. Nakoula, who claims to have been the film's logistics manager but not its director, has in the past been convicted on bank fraud charges and may have violated his probation in uploading the controversial movie to YouTube.
