Aqua-Gate update: Sean Stevens, 28, and Peter Berdovsky, 27, were arrested yesterday for their part in a viral-marketing stunt gone horribly wrong in Boston.

They were, apparently, responsible for hanging the Aqua Teen Hunger Force LED advertisements around Boston, that were mistaken for terrorist weapons, causing a scare yesterday that basically shut down the city of Boston for several hours.

The two accussed are to appear in state court in Charlestown to face charges of placing a hoax device and disorderly conduct. Turner Broadcasting, a unit of Time Warner Inc., late Wednesday said it was responsible for the devices, which had been installed in 10 major U.S. cities. The charges could add up to a maximun of five years in jail

Massachusetts officials are looking into suing Turner Broadcasting for the cost of the police panic to the tune of at least million bucks.

If you happen to have a few hundred bucks, you might want to buy one of the actual signs that caused the panic on eBay.

I, for one, am starting the Free Ignignokts movement.
