PETER FOSTER has been arrested near Byron Bay this afternoon.
The notorious conman was been on the run since September last year after fleeing the country and avoiding court to face charges of his involvement with slimming product SensaSlim.
Police have refused to say the 52 year old man found at Ewingsdale this afternoon is Foster, but the man was wanted on a number of warrants and was taken to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.
