Rumors spread: Sibe behind bars?
It seems word is spreading over the newsgroups that Ross "Sibe" Reddick, wanted by quite a few artists and network admins for numerous counts of copyright violation, distribution of artwork, DoS attacks, and general script kiddie annoyances, has apparently landed himself in jail.
Now I must note that this claim has not been substantiated, and should be treated as rumor until someone can prove that the poster does in fact speak the truth..
According to a poster on AFF, Sibe took the poster's bank card (who apparently gave Sibe the pin #, which makes the whole story sound fishy. Why would you give someone like Sibe your pin number? But anyway...) obtained $500 from said poster's bank account, and went for a joy ride to Camas, WA (Sibe hails from Portland, OR), where he was apparently arrested. He faces assult and battery charges in Oregon, according to the poster. [mwalimu adds: The arrest was for auto theft.]
As a note, Sibe does have a file with the FBI, who has been watching his antics, with the help of several artists and server administrators..
Also, if anyone CAN substantiate these claims, fill us in! ;>
