Roman Polanski was finally arrested for a sex charge that stemmed from 1977, 32 years ago.
The filmmaker had a sexual relationship with a 13 year old back in 1977. He was charged with rape and in 1978, he fled and has been living in Paris ever since. He attended the Zurich Film Festival in Switzerland this weekend and U.S. officials made their move and help from Swiss officials. It is being reported that Roman was stunned when he got arrested thinking he would be protected under french law but was arrested before getting a lifetime achievement award at the festival.
U.S. officials want him to return to California to face charges but Polanski is doing everything he can to fight the arrest and charges. If he does not agree to go to Los Angeles, the U.S. Justice department has 60 days to take him there and file a written request. Officials from his homeland of Poland and France where he lives are protesting him being held.
Polanski, is 76 years old and has had strange things follow him for his entire career. His wife at the time, Sharon Tate, was murdered at the Manson family house, and then arrested at the Beverly Hills Hotel after a 13 year old girl said he raped her at Jack Nicholson's Mulholland Drive house.
The girl, Samantha Geimer, reached an agreement with the director and forgave him publicily. It has not been good enough for the D.A.'s office however, and has been pursuing him ever since.
What do you think of this case and his arrest? For me, I am going to do what he didn't when it came to that girl and not touch it.-Dr.FB
Not satisfied with mixed reports of why David Carradine died, weather it was suicide or foul play, Carradine's family is asking for FBI help and is receiving it.
David's body was found in Bangkok last week hanging from his closet. Mark Geragos, Chris Brown's lawyer and the infamous lawyer who protected Michael Jackson & Scott Peterson spoke out about the Carradine's family's request. The family was upset earlier this weekend when a Thai newspaper posted a photo of Carradine hanging.
You guys may have seen that since the death of Mr. Carradine, Bill killed Bill, if you must, I have been silent where there has been at least 2 stories on every other major blog site. My thing is I guess I don't like speculation and I like facts. I do understand that if I did just speculate it would bring more attention to here on this story and in time, I will have to do crap like that. For now, I rather give you the facts and the facts are right now, they are unsure if it was suicide or foul play. Was he doing a sex act?
We will find out soon.-Dr.FB
