Iraq: Muqtada al-Sadr to be arrested?

The Guardian, quoting an unnamed official, is reporting that US & coalition forces are preparing to arrest Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr for murder.
"The belief of the coalition is that al-Sadr is not containable," the council source said. "They believe there is enough evidence that Muqtada was involved in the Khoei assassination and want to act to clip his wings before he can cause any more damage."
I don't have a good feeling about this.
