 From the Seattle Times:

John Kenneth Arnold, 47, is scheduled to appear before a U.S. magistrate judge for arraignment Thursday afternoon. The indictment was issued last September and unsealed upon his arrest Thursday morning.

The indictment alleges that during sworn testimony on Feb. 18, 2009, Arnold was asked a series of questions about whether he had engaged in sex acts with dancers at Rick's. Arnold answered no.

Arnold is listed as one of Intelius' co-founders. It offers a number of online directories and services, including a "sleaze detector" allows subscribers to obtain criminal and other background information on prospective dates.
