Japanese Cop Arrested for Illegally Filming a Magical Girl Anime

While it seems like Japanese police are arresting people for breaking the country's copyright law, now one of their own has been busted... for breaking the country's copyright law.

A 38 year-old police sergeant in Fukushima has been charged after allegedly using his digital camera to illegally capture the latest feature film version of anime Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha. This apparently happened three times this summer.

A cinema staffer supposedly saw him filming this August, reports Sponichi. (Culture)
