The FBI has identified a teenager as the author of a damaging virus-like
infection unleashed on the Internet and plans to arrest him early Friday, a U.S.
official confirmed Thursday.

It always worries me when law enforcement send out a press statement
that they are going to arrest a particular individual "in the future".
Where is he "now" and why won't he remove himself to "somewhere a long
way away", overnight? Obviously, there is something more complex
happening here.

Many accused offenders pre-arrange, often through laywers, times to 
surrender themselves to authorities. This is a Good Thing. A lot less
dangerous to both law enforcement personnel and the accused, not to 
mention a lot cheaper.

However, none of the artciles I have seen mention whether "teekid" 
surrendered himself or was picked up "off the street." But he must have
known the Feds were on to him already. They questioned him, searched
his house, and seized several of his computers on the 19th.
