Lincolnshire police have arrested a 16-year-old suspected of hacking into his next door neighbour's Wi-Fi conn...
The neighbour, reports The Register, had complained their connection was running slow and had brought in a friend to investigate.
They concluded that the boy next door had hacked into the connection and called in the police.
The police arrived at the boy's house at 9pm on a Sunday night on 5 October and arrested him under the Computer Misuse Act 1990. The youngster was then questioned until almost midnight.
After questioning, the boy was then offered a caution for his alleged behaviour, but his accompanying father refused this.
Ten day's later, a letter was pushed through the boy's door cancelling his bail requirements and stating no further action would be taken.
The father is now said to have filed a complaint for unlawful arrest and detention.
