The Smoking Gun reports that a man known as the "Sultan of Sleaze" was arrested this week for his alleged role in an extortion plot involving Tom Cruise and pictures of Cruise's wedding to Katie Holmes. The pictures had been stolen from Cruise, and the word on the wires is that the suspect — a sleazeball named David Hans Schmidt who is also linked to Barry Bonds' ex-girlfriend — often contacts celebs to see if they want to buy back private photos or videos before he tries to sell them publicly. We never thought we'd say this, but we're on Team Tom in this case. [TSG]
