He was on probation for fraud, specifically, check-kiting. As part of his probation agreement, he was forbidden from using aliases. He is being accused of continuing to use aliases, in violation of that agreement.
If someone who is on probation does something that puts his name in the headlines, his probation officer is going to start watching him a little more closely, as probation officers want to avoid getting their names in the headlines.
Has there been any news on this? I saw him "perp-walked" on FoxNews_Redeye but not much more. He doesn't sound like the cleanest of people but there are literally tens of thousands of violent criminals in violation of their probation and parole in the state of California and I can't believe that (even with the "flight risk") that the coppers couldn't find more important warrants to serve.
The problem with this story is that the police really had no choice in the matter. His probation violation had an extremely high profile. He was also accused of having changed the script and dubbing in dialog in post production, so the actors had no idea that they were involved in something that was going to be a controversy. That put them in danger without their consent. As much as I agree with his message, he's still a sleaze and a crook, and the revocation of his probation was warranted by he facts.
