An anonymous reader writes “Scotland Yard has tonight charged 18-year-old Jake Davis, who was arrested in the Shetland Islands last week, with five offenses including unauthorized computer access and conspiracy to carry out a DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attack against the SOCA (Serious Organized Crime Agency) website. When announcing his arrest on Wednesday, police said that they believed Davis used the online nickname ‘Topiary’ and acted as the spokesperson for the Anonymous and LulzSec hacking groups. Topiary’s final twitter message said ‘You can’t arrest an idea’ just before his arrest.”
