Man arrested for carrying martial arts swords
Many Chinese are fans of the martial arts novels written by Louis Cha Leung-yung, better known by his pen name Jin Yong. But one man took his fandom so far that he winded up arrested for it.
A 20-year-old man, surnamed Li, loved Jin Yong's stories so much that he made replica swords as described in the novels out of stainless steel and often carried them around with him on the street, just like the fictional swordsmen in the stories.
On April 25, when Li, carrying his swords, was waiting at a bus stop in Chen village, Shunde district, Foshan of South China's Guangdong province, he was noticed by the police and four swords were found on him.
He was detained for carrying knives, which are controlled items, and the swords were confiscated, reported Guangzhou Daily on May 5.
