Former News of the World Editor Arrested

Andy Coulson, the former editor of Rupert Murdoch's News of the World and British PM David Cameron's former director of communications, turned himself in to police in London today over the growing phone-hacking scandal. A statement from the Metropolitan Police reads, in part:

At 10:30 officers from the MPS' Operation Weeting together with officers from Op Elveden arrested a man on suspicion of conspiring to intercept communications, contrary to Section1(1) Criminal Law Act 1977 and on suspicion of corruption allegations contrary to Section 1 of the Prevention of Corruption Act 1906.
