LOS ANGELES — A Southern California filmmaker linked to an anti-Islamic movie inflaming protests across the Middle East was interviewed by federal probation officers at a Los Angeles sheriff’s station but was not arrested or detained, authorities said early Saturday.
Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, was interviewed at the station in his hometown of Cerritos, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Don Walker said.
Federal officials have said they were investigating the activities of Nakoula, who has been convicted of financial crimes. If the probation department determines Nakoula violated terms of his release, a judge could send him back to prison.
Walker said Nakoula traveled voluntarily in a squad car with deputies.
“He went to the Cerritos station to talk with probation officers. He’s not under any arrest,” Walker said.
The deputy said he doesn’t have information on the interview or how long it lasted. KNBC-TV reported that Nakoula went to the station early Saturday morning.
The TV station said that media had been staking out the home at the end of a cul de sac in the Southern California city when the man emerged wearing a coat, hat, scarf and glasses.
There was no answer early Saturday at the federal probation department’s California’s central district office in Los Angeles.
