FRANK BUCKLEY, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Well, Wolf, right now, we just have some additional detail on what Mitchell Crooks was doing for the past several hours since last night. We've been in contact with Tom Martinez who runs the Tan (ph) Broadcast Center, which is actually in the same CNN Center Building in Los Angeles.

He tells me that last night, Mitchell Crooks stayed with him in his Long Beach apartment because Crooks was afraid. He said that he was concerned and afraid that police would harm him in some way. He didn't say why, but he was concerned about that, so Martinez tells me that he put Crooks up in his apartment in Long Beach.

He brought him back to the CNN Building this morning, as Crooks prepared to do various media appearances today. He got Crooks a sandwich. Crooks at some point went downstairs, and he says that when Crooks was down there smoking a cigarette, that's when the D.A. investigators came upon him and took him into custody right there at the CNN Building.

The D.A. investigators are sworn peace officers. The District Attorney's Office says that while they were there to serve this subpoena, they also knew about the outstanding arrest warrants -- arrest warnings on Mitchell Crooks, and they had a duty to take him into custody, and that's exactly what they did. So, just some additional detail that last night Mitchell Crooks stayed at this apartment in Long Beach and then was taken into custody today -- Wolf.
