A famous man was at the wrong place at the wrong time, when officers decided to make a prostitution bust.
Award winning filmmaker Wang Quan’an, was arrested in Beijing, for lewd acts with a prostitute.
Prostitution and the use of prostitutes are both illegal in China.
Wang allegedly admitted to soliciting sex from multiple women for three consecutive days, and supposedly paid 800 yuan (about $130) for his last prostitute.
He allegedly also admitted to having sex with two women at the same time. Wang, along with six other sex workers and an 18-year-old pimp, were arrested for questioning.
Wang is known for his films Tuya’s Marriage, which won an award at the Berlin Festival, and the White Deer Plain.
Wang is facing up to 15 days in jail along with a fine as the government is cracking down on prostitution.
