The man credited as Sam Bacile is expected to appear in federal court on Thursday for violating parole.
Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the filmmaker who sparked violence worldwide after releasing portions of his anti-Islamic film Innocence of Muslims online, has been arrested for violating terms of his parole, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Nakoula, who was credited as Sam Bacile in the production notes, is expected to appear in Los Angeles federal court on Thursday afternoon.
The news was confirmed by a court spokesman, Reuters reports, who said Nokoula would face a bail hearing with regards to an ongoing investigation into whether or not her violated the terms of his 2011 release from prison on a bank fraud conviction.
The parole terms barred Nakoula from "accessing the Internet or using aliases without the permission of a probation officer," according to Reuters.
