City of London police has confirmed that the 17-year-old they arrested this week has been charged with two counts of computer misuse.

While not confirmed to be in relation to the Rockstar hack, a former Reuters journalist claims the initial arrest was "connected to the hack on Rockstar Games." The police have told us that they have "no further information to share at this stage." The unnamed 17-year-old has now been charged with two counts of computer misuse, as well as two counts of breach of bail conditions.

He will appear in court today, although given that Youth Court is closed to the public in the UK, the media will not be in attendance.
