The filmmaker allegedly behind the controversial "Innocence of Muslims" movie who was voluntarily questioned by federal authorities over the weekend is now in hiding with his family.
Los Angeles County sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore said Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was questioned and allowed to leave the Cerritos substation. He was not arrested or detained.
His family left their Cerritos home Monday morning, where they had been surrounded by media crews and holed up since last week. Whitmore said they are meeting up with Nakoula at an undisclosed location.
