As outrage over the anti-Muslim film “Innocence of Muslims” spreads across the Middle East, police were sent to the California home of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the film’s producer, who according to authorities is frightened for his life.

Sheriff’s deputies were sent to the Cerritos, California home of Nakoula, 55, Thursday to protect him and his family, a senior law enforcement official told ABC News. According to a sheriff, the police were at Nakoula’s home overnight Thursday but have now left, as media reports identifying him as the man behind “Innocence of Muslims,” and listing his address, have circulated.
