Channel 4 News made the announcement on Twitter, and it seems the Metropolitan Police here in the UK have also released a statement, although they have not confirmed whether the individual arrested is connected to LulzSec.
Officers from the Metropolitan Police Central e-Crime Unit (PCeU) have arrested a 19-year-old man in a pre-planned intelligence-led operation.
The arrest follows an investigation into network intrusions and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks against a number of international business and intelligence agencies by what is believed to be the same hacking group.
