People Who Have Been Arrested Fewer Times than Rebekah Brooks
According to multiple news sources, former News International Chief Executive Rebekah Brooks has been arrested. Rebekah and her husband were arrested early this morning in their Oxfordshire home as part of the Operation Weeting investigation into allegations of phone-hacking at the now-defunct News of the World, where Brooks used to be editor.
