An Arizona man has been arrested on charges that he used a computer to interrupt a local telecast of the 2009 Super Bowl with a 37-second pornography clip.

The FBI and Marana police took Frank Tanori Gonzalez into custody Friday on suspicion of fraud and computer tampering.

Authorities say someone cut into the Comcast cable broadcast of the game between the Arizona Cardinals and Pittsburgh Steelers that went to viewers in the Tucson area.

Comcast ended up offering a $10 credit to all of its 80,000 subscribers, whether they saw the brief X-rated clip or not, and the investigation was turned over to the FBI.

Authorities didn't say what led them to Gonzalez. His age and other background information wasn't available and it was unclear if he has a lawyer.
