Ref: http://www.serocu.org.uk/31/section.aspx/21/man_arrested_swatting_and_denial_of_service_offences

Working together - DOJ/FBI, UK's SEROCU (South East Regional Organised Crime Unit), NCCU (National CyberCrime Unit) - with a team like that you know that they are taking this seriously.

They arrested an 18 year old man as part of an investigation into ‘swatting’ and computer hacking offences. It doesn't pay to be a Grinch."This arrest demonstrates that we will pursue those who commit crime with the false perception they are protected within their own homes or hiding behind anonymous online personas."

Pseudonymity is not anonymity, kids.

It would seem that rumors that the accused is Jordan Cameron are not true:
The parents of a teenager wrongly accused of being a hacking kingpin who brought Microsoft and Sony to their knees say they are ready to return to their “boring and run-of-the-mill” lives.

Robert and Carol Cameron and their 16-year-old son Jordan had their lives turned upside down when he was implicated as the supposed mastermind behind the attacks on Xbox and PlayStation networks which left gamers unable to play their consoles online.

KrebsOnSecurity: Seems that two teenagers named Jordan Cameron live in England. And they both have computers.
