Federal officials questioned the Egyptian-born filmmaker thought to be responsible for making "Innocence of Muslims," the anti-Islamic movie blamed for sparking protests in the Muslim world.

The Los Angeles Times reported that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was taken from his home in Cerritos, Calif., to a police station early Saturday morning.

Nakoula, who is believed to have used the alias Sam Bacile, has been in hiding since the film's release on the Internet.

Nakoula told The Associated Press that he was the logistics manager for the film, not the director.

Investigators questioned Nakoula about the film and its posting to the Internet to determine if he violated terms of his probation

He had been previously convicted on charges of bank fraud.
