Well then, this is slightly-concerning...
Reports from Russia* claim that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has been detained by authorities in the United States, specifically the FBI. Obviously, this could be very, very bad. We really don't need our owner being thrown in prison right now, but the way our season has been going...

We shouldn't be worried as yet, since US authorities have the annoying habit of detaining people for no reason. There's also every chance these reports are inaccurate, but major sources like RT [Russia Today] are getting involved, which makes me believe they might not be. With the recent death of the man he recently defeated in court, there's some speculation it may be related. No matter the reason, or even if the reports are false, it's certainly a situation to watch as it develops, and we'll be here to bring you any news as we get it.
UPDATE: Abramovich's representatives have confirmed that he's in the country, but have denied that he's been detained. This is still worth watching for a while, though.
UPDATE 2: His PR guy confirms he's not been detained. We can probably stop worrying, but I wouldn't completely ignore it for a while longer.
Official Tweet: The RBC story about Roman Abramovich being arrested is NOT TRUE.— John Mann (@JohnMannII) March 25, 2013
UPDATE 3: Even the FBI are denying this now. It appears to be a complete non-story. I don't know if I'm happy or not. : /
According to Telegraph, also FBI denied Abramovich arrest, and that's it— Tancredi Palmeri (@tancredipalmeri) March 25, 2013
