Supposed Freeman-on-the-land Andreas Pirelli is not free anymore.

The man who declared the northwest duplex he rents an "embassy" and refused to pay full rent to his landlady was arrested early Friday by city police, said Duty Insp. Darrell Hesse.

"Our members attended the address in Parkdale just before 2 a.m. — they engaged in some sort of dialogue with Mr. Pirelli, or Mr. Antonacci as I believe that's his real name, and at some point during the dialogue he was taken into custody without incident," Hesse said.
