According to a 24-page indictment released by the special counsel Friday, he was arrested on one-count of obstruction of an official proceeding, five-counts of making false statements, and one-count of witness tampering.

Stone is expected to make an initial court appearance before 11:00 AM Eastern Standard Time Friday in Fort Lauderdale.

He has been under investigation by Mueller for his alleged ties to the WikiLeaks document dump ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

Stone has adamantly denied all accusations of wrongdoing, and has blasted the Mueller probe as a “witch hunt.”
