The man they believed to be a member of LulzSec was reportedly a famous internet troll, whom a LulzSec member "stole" the name of. This could prove the latest embarasment for UK police.

LulzSec has a proud history of trickery. Thus far all its supposed "members" who were arrested turned out to be youths who had run afoul of LulzSec parent org. Anonymous. The arrests appear cleverly orchestrated by LulzSec as retribution on behalf on Anonymous. The latest incident seems to be a similar case of misdirection and trickery.
One blog claims this man to be the "real" LulzSec Topiary, as seen in an Anonymous press interview.
Chat logs, video evidence indicate that the arrest was the result of misdirection
