Barrett Brown appears to have been arrested on 9/12/12. Our thoughts go out to him and his family. Barrett was video conferencing on tinychat, as he often does, at the time of the raid and a recording of his arrest has been circulating the Internet.
The Prison Reform Movement, a solidarity network, claimed on their Twitter this morning to have contacted the Dallas Co. Jail and were informed that Barrett had been released to another agency. AnonyOps, shortly thereafter, confirmed this as well. Although we ourselves have not contacted the jail we consider these sources reliable.
Barrett was scheduled to be in US District Court in Dallas today, 9/13/12, at 2pm CST for arraignment. He was taken into custody, according to criminal law specialist Leiderman Devine, as a direct result of threats made to FBI officer Robert Smith in a series of videos he published on YouTube.
According to Barrett’s girlfriend whom was present at the time of the raid, no charges have been filed against Barrett and he has not been allowed bail. Another hearing has been scheduled for the 24th of this month; September. Barrett Brown currently remains in FBI custody.
