June 18, 2018—The CEO of Audi was arrested in Germany on suspicion of his involvement in the Volkswagen emissions scandal, USA Today reports.

The German investigation ensnared Audi boss Rupert Stadler, who was widely considered a subject of the probe but had so far survived the fallout from the scandal despite questions over the VW luxury brand's role.

Stadler, who was accused by Munich prosecutors of collusion, becomes the first person in the VW executive suite to spend time behind bars in connection with the scandal.

Spokespeople for Volkswagen and Audi were not immediately available to comment Monday morning.
