Greek photographer Pericles Antoniou was visiting London with his family last month when he photographed a little girl on a subway train.

The girl’s mother immediately protested, so Antoniou apologized and showed the mother the images he took before deleting them.

But a man claiming to be the girl’s father followed him out of the train car as he exited the station and complained to police.

Police ended up arresting Antoniou for causing “public harassment, alarm and distress.” He was handcuffed and thrown in a jail cell before he was eventually released.

Last week, after flying in from Greece to attend a hearing, a judge dismissed the case due to lack of evidence.
