(France24) - A Taiwanese fugitive who knew no English has been arrested because police were curious about the word "Wanted" on his T-shirt.

The man, identified only by his surname Wu and wanted on drug abuse charges, was arrested last week at Huwei, a town in the southern country of Yunlin, a police spokesman told AFP.

A patrolling police officer who had passed an elementary-level nationwide English proficiency test approached Wu because of his T-shirt, the spokesman said.

Further questioning of Wu and a check on his status on the police computer system led to the arrest.

Wu told police the T-shirt was a gift from his son and he would not have worn it had he known what "Wanted" meant.
