Roman Polanski Arrested by AloyEmeka9: 12:23am On Sep 28, 2009
Roman Polanski Arrested -- Finally
Posted Sep 27th 2009 9:37AM by TMZ Staff
Roman Polanski will not be able to attend the Zurich Film Festival -- which was set to honor him with a lifetime achievement award -- because he got arrested for that whole statutory rape thing he's been fleeing from for the past 30 years.

The famed director was taken into custody by Swiss authorities trying to enter Switzerland yesterday.

Polanski pled guilty in 1977 to having unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor (she was 13) but then fled the United States before he could be sentenced. Polanski has lived in France ever since to avoid being arrested.




There has been no timeline set as to when or if he will be extradited back to the U.S.

UPDATE -- According to Sandi Gibbons, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County district attorney's office, the U.S. Justice Department worked in conjunction with Swiss authorities in securing the arrest. According to the LA Times, they had come close to arresting Polanski several times over the past decade.

1977 at he would at least 30 yrs old then.shame .and see now when the applause is greatest for this acclaimed film maker na im the crime come wait for am. but swiss authorities sha! them no close the file after all these years.kudos to them. do you think he went deliberately to switzerland to be arrested? he had to know that the warrant for him was still active after all he plead guilty.

He was 44 then. A 44 year old man sleeping with a 13 year old girl  is an abomination in my books. I am sure he will use lawyers to beat this case. @76, this is the last thing he wants to deal with and he ought to know that Switzerland has extradition agreements with the US unlike France. The abused girl/woman thinks his arrest is ridiculous and they should leave him alone and some people think he probably gave her some money to forgive and forget, after all he is Roman Polanski. I don't know why he didn't run to Naija, even the father of the raped will protect him here for a fee. Coincidentally, Susan Atkins, the lady that murdered his wife(Sharon Tate) died on 24th after staying almost 40 years in prison.

argh! he was 44? then he deserves a more crude and babaric punishment involving his genitals. if the girl/woman says they should leave him alone maybe at the time she agreed to it. stranger things have happened. but something like that money is more likely the motive.

His wife was murdered in 1969, almost 10 years prior to the rape.

If this man were black the police would have had his ass in jail before the trial and sentence. *Shakes my head at the double standards* America needs to do better.
