Ex-Anonymous spokesman busted for FBI threats

Dallas – The FBI arrested a former spokesman for the hacktivist group Anonymous for making threats against an agent.

Barrett Brown posted a rambling, obscenity-laced YouTube video in which he allegedly threatened FBI Special Agent Robert Smith over his questioning his mother about laptop computers and other materials he hid at her house. It is one of three such announcements Mr. Brown posted over the past few days.

In the video statement, Mr. Brown prefaces his remarks by admitting that he was once addicted to heroin.

Federal agents confiscated Mr. Brown's computer in a search of his home in March.
