The man who created BetOnSports.com has been arrested in the US, thanks to a 2006 law that prevents online gambling in the 50 states. Even though the UK has no such law, the US attorney's office in St. Louis Missouri says that because his site operates in the US, they have some legal jurisdiction.

It's the biggest foreign online gambling arrest since the US law went into effect last year. There's been a warrant for the owner's arrest since August.It's not just the national law that's the problem, though. The man has also been charged with racketeering, conspiracy and fraud.
