Via NBC 4 in Los Angeles:
The Cerritos man who many believe to be behind an anti-Muslim video that has inflamed the Islamic world was denied bail Thursday afternoon after a judge deemed him a flight risk.Here is where things get a little confusing. Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was the man convicted in 2010 on charges related to a bank fraud scheme and violated the terms of his probation by using the internet and aliases.
Nakoula Besseley Nakoula remains in federal custody after being arrested hours earlier on suspicion of violating the terms of his parole, according to a spokesman for the Los Angeles U.S. Attorney's Office.
Nakoula's arrest was sought by officials of the United States Probation Office, spokesman Thom Mrozek said.
Presumptively, that must necessarily mean that Nakoula was the guy who violated the terms of his probation, right? Well, in this news report, NBC 4 says his real name is Mark Bacile Yousef. Does that mean he gave an alias to the court back in 2010 or does it mean that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula is not the guy who was arrested yesterday?
