The Guardian – Chinese billionaire CEO Richard Liu arrested in US, accused of sexual offence
He was arrested shortly before midnight on Friday and was released just after 4pm on Saturday, according to Hennepin county sheriff’s office. Its website showed Liu was “released pending complaint”. Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder said an investigation was ongoing and declined to provide details of the arrest.
《卫报》说东哥是上周五凌晨被捕的，周六早上4点释放。上文中的”released pending complaint”的意思是“获释等候传唤/控告”，就是说美国警方还在调查中，还没有正式结果和结论。

JD.com said Mr Liu, also known as Richard Liu, was falsely accused. Police say the investigation is open.
“We made the decision to release him, that is not indicative of the strength of the evidence,” John Elder, police public information officer, told the BBC.
“There is absolutely no restriction on his travel. The understanding is that if we need to get in touch with him, we will be able to do so.”
另一点值得注意的是，不论是the Guardian还是BBC，在报道中都用了criminal sexual conduct（性侵害）一词，而不是sexual harassment（性骚扰）.
