There are reports on Twitter indicating that Craig Thomson has been arrested.
Update I: Sky News now reporting arrest.
Update II: Report from the ABC.
Federal independent MP Craig Thomson has been arrested on the New South Wales Central Coast.
His lawyer, Chris McArdle, says he was contacted by Mr Thomson shortly after 1:00pm (AEDT) today.
“The police are there arresting him and charging him [with] all charges, such as obtained $300 for himself or something,” Mr McArdle told ABC News Online.
“He has to go to the police station where he has to sign a form and then go home again.”
Mr McArdle says Mr Thomson is due to appear in court next week and his client will plead not guilty.
“He isn’t guilty, so it’s a pretty good clue that he’s going to plead not guilty.”
Update III: NSW police confirm that a 48 year old man is assisting them with their enquiries.
