FBI Arrests Roger Stone in Florida on Friday

Political consultant Roger Stone was arrested Friday morning by the FBI after a District of Columbia grand jury indicted the Trump associate on seven counts.

Stone was detained at his Fort Lauderdale home and will appear at a federal courthouse later in the day on Friday.

Stone was indicted Thursday by a federal grand jury in the District of Columbia on seven counts, including one count of obstruction of an official proceeding, five counts of false statements, and one count of witness tampering.

According to CNN, FBI agents arrived at Stone’s house just after 6 a.m. eastern.

“FBI. Open the door,” one agent said after knocking on the door. The door opened, and Stone appeared.

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s office issued a brief statement about the arrest:

UPDATE, 11:53AM: CNN reports that Stone was released on $250,000. The judge asked Stone to surrender his passport, to which Stone replied he did not have a valid passport.
