HBO dropped a bombshell on viewers--and Robert Durst was arrested because of it..

Durst is a millionaire eccentric, and has been linked to two murders fifteen years ago. On Sunday, just before an HBO finale about his life, he was arrested.. The ASSOCIATED PRESS reports in dispatches tonight:
Durst was arrested on a murder warrant just before Sunday evening's finale of an HBO serial documentary about his links to three sensational killings.

In the finale, Durst was asked about similarities in handwriting in a letter he wrote and another linked to one of the killings. Later, filmmakers said Durst wore his microphone into the bathroom.

What followed was a bizarre rambling in which Durst said, apparently to himself, "There it is. You're caught" and "What the hell did I do? Killed them all of course."

The show ended, and it wasn't clear whether producers confronted Durst about the secretly recorded words, or what Durst meant by them.

But the FBI swooped in and he was arrested in New Orleans.. Durst left his Houston town house for New Orleans to escape unwanted attention since the documentary's second-to-last episode aired. The Durst family is worth more than $4 billion..
