You're Under Arrest/arrêté/arrestasie/anholdelse/prisão/aresto/арестом

Ok folks, if you're living in Calgary, don't assume anything...

SAY WHAT? When a woman in Calgary, Alta., Canada, called police to report
a burglary, one of the officers to respond was Const. Charanjit Meharu,
an immigrant from India. The hysterical victim already had a list of
everything stolen. Then her phone rang. She spoke to her father in
Quebec, and explained in French that "she and her boyfriend made up the
story to make an insurance claim," Meharu said later. "By the end [of
the call] I had about 10 pages of notes, and I said, 'Merci beaucoup'.
She didn't expect a brown guy to speak French." The officer speaks
seven languages. (Calgary Sun) ...Though which ones specifically remain
a state secret.
