LONDON (AFX) - BetonSports PLC's chief executive David Carruthers has been detained by US federal authorities while changing flights in the US en route from the UK to Costa Rica.
'We will be monitoring this case closely as it is too early to say if this is part of a broader strategy on prevention of Internet gambling in the US or if it is the Department of Justice flexing their muscle and trying to influence legislation,' said Greg Harris, an analyst at Cannacord.

It surprises me that he would even try stepping foot in the U.S. I thought he's been a wanted man for years...the government acts as if he is Kevin Mitnick. . .back in the day. It also surprises me that he would come into the U.S., especially now, because he recently made comments stating prohibition doesn't work, the Senate will fail to pass the bill, and regulation is necessary.
