Texan campaigner for 3D-printed gun arrested in Taiwan

Texan campaigner for 3D-printed gun arrested in Taiwan

The Austin man owns Defense Distributed, which sells blueprints for producing plastic firearms using 3D printers.

Taiwan's National Immigration Agency and Criminal Investigation Bureau confirmed to CBS News Friday that Wilson had been arrested.

A lawyer for Wilson, as well as representatives of the Austin police department and the US Marshals Service, were not immediately available for comment on Friday.

Taiwan's National Immigration Agency said in a statement that Wilson was caught by the police earlier Friday and handed over to immigration authorities to process his deportation.

After news broke yesterday that Wilson, 30, is wanted for allegedly sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl in Austin, Texas, the National Immigration Agency (NIA) received notification from the us that his passport would be canceled, reported Liberty Times.

Staffers at the Zhongzheng Second police precinct in Taipei, Taiwan, where the media outlet Taiwan News reported the apprehension, were familiar with the case but could not confirm any arrest because of the late hour there, they told ABC News.

Baker Mayfield completes first pass of his National Football League career
After the win, Browns fans took to the streets to celebrate the first win for the franchise in almost two years. Fans were double-taking the win since the Browns hadn't seen a regular season victory since December 2016.

Wilson and the 16-year-old had sex at a hotel, and he paid her $500, according to Austin police.

The files could previously be downloaded for free, but a federal judge issued a nationwide injunction last month that blocked the posting of the blueprints online.

Wilson is identified in the affidavit as the owner of Austin-based Defense Distributed.

The victim disclosed the details about the incident to a counselor, who informed Austin police.

The victim met Wilson on sugardaddymeet.com, a website that bills itself as the "Best Sugar Daddy Dating Site for Attractive Women and Wealthy Men Seeking Mutually Beneficial Relationships". He paid her $500 for sex. After a federal court barred Wilson from posting the printable gun blueprints online for free last month, he announced he had begun selling them for any amount of money to USA customers through his website.

Law enforcement officials worry the guns are easy to hide and are untraceable since there's no requirement for the firearms to have serial numbers. Gun industry experts have said the printed guns are a modern method of legally assembling a firearm a home without serial numbers.
