We reported via the Romanian publication Libertatea that Andrew Tate, along with his brother Tristan, "have been arrested in Romania on human sex-trafficking allegations." Per the Libertatea, the siblings were charged with kidnapping and rape with more details to come. Evidently, there is a video of the Tate brothers "being led out of a building in handcuffs by police and into a waiting vehicle."
How Tate was partially caught is almost quite literally a chef's kiss moment. In response to Thunberg's tweet, Tate dropped a two-minute rambling video where he's smoking too many cigars and not wearing enough robe. While he attempts to ridicule a 19-year-old who cares about our dying planet, Tate is delivered pizza. The current working theory is that authorities were able to track him down upon recognizing the name of the pizza place on the boxes. We cannot make this stuff up and look forward to its arrival in a Law & Order episode.

 It’s not because of the pizza or any ingredients in it. It reported that 36-year-old Tate was "under investigation" by the Directorate for Investigating Organised Crime and Terrorism (DIICOT) and reports in Romania claim he and his brother are being questioned on suspicion of forming an organized crime group that used girls in adult videos." This arrest was brought on by the apparent abduction of two girls in Romania.
This is not the first time Tate and his brother have come under suspicion. In April 2022, authorities detained the brothers when "police reportedly found two girls who claimed they were being held against their will." They were both released but police kept a close watch on the siblings. Romanian prosecutors claim Tate, his brother, and two unnamed individuals "appear to have created an organized crime group with the purpose of recruiting, housing, and exploiting women by forcing them to create pornographic content"
