The crime perpetrated by the Lizard Squad is that they targeted PlayStation network knocking it offline on Christmas Day.  Users were unable to access  Microsoft's Xbox Live and Sony's PlayStation Network services on Dec 24 evening and continued into Christmas. Vincent Omari, the 22 year old man from London that serves as a spokesman for the Lizard Squad hacker group, has been jailed on suspicion of his involvement in several thefts from PayPal. It was previously reported that he was let out on bail and no charges have been filed. This arrest has been seen as a way for the investigators to gain valuable information in relation to the rest of the group. [ Vincent Omari seen in the pic below]
