Rasmussen hacker arrested

Danish police have arrested the hacker who broke into Michael Rasmussen's e-mail account, according to the Danish newspaper B.T. They arrested a 30 year-old man from Herning, Denmark, and seized his computer.

It was announced earlier this week that the police were looking for the hacker, who contacted B.T. and offered to turn over Rasmussen's confidential e-mails to the newspaper. The e-mails allegedly included his termination notice from Rabobank and documents detailing his activities in the month before the Tour de France.
