French actor Samy Naceri has been arrested on suspicion of baring his bottom to a group of fans in Cannes, France.
The Taxi star was detained on Sunday (22May11) - the final day of the famous Cannes Film Festival - over allegations he dropped his trousers in front of a group of tourists who asked him for his autograph, according to the local Nice Matin newspaper.
The 49 year old was reportedly taken into custody on suspicion of "displaying an intimate part of his anatomy" in public.
Naceri, who was last month (Apr11) convicted of a 2009 knife attack in France, previously won a Best Actor prize at the Cannes Film Festival for his role in 2006 movie Days of Glory (Indigenes).
The film is almost half an hour longer than 'The Force Awakens'.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
