India issues arrest warrant for Richard Gere

April 26, 2007

Richard Gere kisses Shilpa ShettyRichard Gere’s playful kiss in India that caused an uproar in the country has led to an arrest warrant being issued for the star. 

A city court here issued an arrest warrant against Hollywood actor Richard Gere on Thursday and asked film actress Shilpa Shetty to appear before it on May 5 in connection with a case of kissing in public. Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate Dinesh Gupta gave the orders on a complaint filed by a lawyer that the two actors kissed at an AIDS awareness campaign event in New Delhi recently and this amounted to “indecent representation of sexual activities” at a public place.

This offense is punishable by up to 3 months in prison!  If you are going to go to prison for a kiss on the check what does involving small rodents get you?  What if Gere decides not to show up will they issue a bench warrant for him?  Does he have any real need to go back to India?  I saw Seinfeld where sure refused to use the bathroom in that country so I don’t even want to think about what the prisons might be like.  Good luck Gere and I hope it was worth it.
