The director of James Bond film, Die Another Day, was arrested for allegedly offering oral sex whilst dressing as a woman, according to officials in America.

Lee Tamahori was arrested in January when he approached an undercover Los Angeles police officer and offered to “orally copulate him for money.”

LAPD spokesman, Frank Mateljan said: “”The defendant was loitering on the sidewalk in drag and then approached an undercover officer in his car.”

Mr Tamahori, who is free on $2,000 bail, is charged with soliciting and agreeing to engage in an act of prostitution and loitering with the intent to commit prostitution, he faces up to six months in jail and/or a $1,000 fine if convicted.

The action-flick director once told an interviewer, “Sex should not be in the movies and it should be in the home. And violence should be in the movies and not in the home.”
