    LONDON—In a further escalation of News Corp .'s tabloid-newspaper scandal here, former company executive Rebekah Brooks and her husband were among six people arrested early Tuesday morning by British police investigating journalists and their reporting tactics, according to a person familiar with the matter.

    Police didn't name the individuals, but said six people were arrested in London and several surrounding counties "on suspicion of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice," a crime roughly equivalent to obstruction of justice in the U.S. Some of the addresses are being searched, police said in a statement.

    It is Ms. Brooks's second arrest in the ongoing investigations. She was arrested and questioned last July. Ms. Brooks hasn't been charged with a crime.

    Also among the six arrested Tuesday was Mark Hanna, head of security for News Corp.'s U.K. newspaper unit, a spokeswoman for the unit said Tuesday. She declined to name the others arrested.

    So you're claiming that you have a source at the Metropolitan Police feeding you information? Interesting.

    News Corp is a criminal enterprise run by a criminal family.

    Interesting concept you have of 'due process', Chris. Remind me never to vote for you... you're dangerous.
