A father and son were arrested by the FBI in Allentown this morning on charges of making harassing phone calls to former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's family, lawyers and the lawyers' employees.
Craig Christy and his son Shawn, of McAdoo, Schuylkill County, were arrested without incident just after 11 a.m., according to an FBI statement.
Both men were to have initial appearances in federal magistrate court in Allentown later this afternoon.
It was unclear whether Palin herself received any calls from the Christys.
The announcement said indictments for the Christys were returned by a federal grand jury in Alaska on Wednesday.
