Director Roman Polanski, whose turbulent life has on occasion come close to resembling the violent, perverse world of his movies, has been arrested in Zurich on a 1978 US warrant for having sex with a 13-year-old.
The controversial 76-year-old director was arrested on Saturday (local time) after he arrived to receive a prize at the Zurich film festival.

In May a Los Angeles judge refused the fugitive director’s bid to dismiss the case after Polanski, who lives in France, failed to appear in court.
