The arrest record shows that Cliffe, who has been an employee of Valve since 2003, was booked at 1:17AM Pacific Time (8:17PM AEDT last night).
Cliffe created Counter-Strike with Minh Le while the two were in college in 1999. 'Reports suggest he has been arrested for a felony offence. He's known as the voice of Counter-Strike, voicing the phrase "Counter-Terrorists Win!" and countless other VO in the game.

Cliffe also worked on Half-Life 2, Team Fortress 2, Left 4 Dead 2, and Portal 2, according to KIRO 7.
