An arrest warrant has been issued in Japan for Hayden Panettiere.
"I learned today that I have an arrest warrant out for me in Japan because of what I did for Save the Whales," Panettiere said.
Late last month, the actress-activist participated with others in a confrontation with fisherman during a dolphin hunt. Asked what the repercussions might be from the warrant, Panettiere told People magazine: "Potentially jail, but I doubt it... I guess they could come here and get us, but probably not."
A quick refresher of the incident: On October 30, Panettiere joined other activists in paddling on surfboards into a cove near Taiji in southwestern Japan. Their goal? To interfere with a dolphin hunt there.
The incident drew worldwide attention when video of it reached the Web. And kudos to the Heroes actress for not letting the arrest faze her:
"I'd do it again. Very possibly, might do it again," she said.
