Roman Polanski, the fugitive filmmaker and French resident, has been arrested by Switzerland law enforcement while attempting to enter the country. He was invited by the Zurich Film Festival to accept yet another award for his services to film.
In 1978 Polanski pled guilty to 'engaging in unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor' (a 13 year old). He was 45 at the time. He fled the United States before sentencing. The US authorities subsequently issued a warrant for his arrest. The Swiss are holding him on this warrant.
