Valve's Cliffe Arrested; Suspended

Jess Cliffe, the Valve designer who co-created Counter-Strike, was arrested yesterday for sexual exploitation of a child, reports KIRO-TV. The report says he was booked, and is awaiting a bail hearing today, but confusingly also says he has not been charged with any crime. Police are not saying if an actual child was harmed, and the report notes Cliffe has no criminal record, though they say they've found a record for an assault case against him that was dismissed in 2013. Valve gave a statement on this to Kotaku that says they have suspended Cliffe while they figure out what is going on. Valve says:

"We are still learning details of what actually happened. Reports suggest he has been arrested for a felony offense. As such we have suspended his employment until we know more."

This is what happens when you tell game devs to think of the children.
