Police arrested Rabbi Yaakov Yosef on Sunday morning, Army Radio reported. Last Tuesday, Rabbi Yosef, son of Shas spiritual leader Ovadia Yosef, turned down a police summons calling on him to come to the headquarters of the National Serious and International Crimes Unit in Lod for questioning over his alleged endorsement of the controversial Torat Hamelech (The King’s Torah) book, The Jerusalem Post has learned.

According to the report, Yosef was stopped and arrested while traveling on Route 1 in Jerusalem.
