sportingbet.com's chairman was arrested!

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The chairman of online bookmaker Sportingbet.com, Peter Dicks, was arrested on a warrant from Louisiana at John F. Kennedy International Airport late on Wednesday, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said on Thursday.

"He was picked up at 11:30 p.m. (EDT) at JFK Airport on an active out-of-state warrant," Pasquale DiFulco, a spokesman for the agency, said. "He's being held by Port Authority police awaiting extradition."

DiFulco would not reveal the nature of the charges and a call to the Louisiana State Police was not immediately returned.

Earlier, Sportingbet.com said Dicks had been detained by U.S. authorities.
