It was almost a year ago that actor Robert Blake’s wife, Bonny Lee Bakley, was found murdered in their car.

Tonight the 67-year-old Blake is in police custody along with his longtime bodyguard. More details about the arrest will follow.

In a scene that was similar to the coverage of OJ Simpson, local LA stations broke into regular programming to show helicopter shots of the white police car taking him off to police headquarters.
