A laid-off computer technician has been arrested for investigation of hacking into telephone hotline systems used by the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services and other government agencies, the FBI said Monday.

Walter Wiggs, 44, of Douglasville, Ga., was arrested Friday on federal charges of gaining unauthorized access to a protected government computer, authorities said.

Wiggs allegedly deleted critical files from the child protection system in early July, delaying or disrupting incoming calls, authorities said.

Wiggs is a former computer technician with a Manhattan Beach-based company that develops software for telephone voice response systems. The complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles alleges that after Wiggs was laid off in June, he used a computer at his Georgia home to access about 13 computers that used the software, including those of the child services agency, the cities of San Diego and Modesto and the Orange County District Attorney's Office.

Wiggs is currently in federal custody in Atlanta.
