The police have arrested controversial figure and co-founder of the advocacy group Tambourine Army, Latoya Nugent.

Head of the Counter Terrorism and Organised Crime (CTOC) Investigation Branch Assistant Commissioner of Police Clifford Chambers confirmed that Nugent was arrested and charged yesterday.

She’s charged with malicious use of computers following several complaints from individuals about Nugent’s behaviour online.

Chambers said Nugent will be brought before the court today to answer to the charges laid against her under the Cybercrimes Act.

Nugent, who is known to be militant in her approach to advocacy, often using expletives in her postings on social media website, Facebook, was named a person of interest by the police last week.
