FBI agents have arrested West New York's mayor on charges of hacking into a website tied to a
recall group against him.

A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney's Office tells The Star-Ledger Mayor Felix Roque and his son, Joseph, were taken into custody Thursday.

Roque is a Democrat who beat former Mayor Sal Vega in the city's nonpartisan election on May 10.

The mayor is due to appear in federal court at 1 p.m.
