BEIJING — Beijing police say they have detained film director Wang Quan’an on a charge of prostitution.

Police said in a statement Monday that Wang was found with a suspected prostitute several days ago in a Beijing apartment and paid the woman 800 yuan ($130) for the service. Police say Wang engaged in prostitution for three nights in a row.


Wang is the acclaimed director of the 2011 film “White Deer Plain.” His 2007 film “Tuya’s Marriage” won the top Golden Bear award at the Berlin International Film Festival.

China is cracking down on prostitution and illegal drug use, with high-profile arrests of wayward celebrities. Last month, police detained Jaycee Chan, son of the movie superstar Jackie Chan, on drug allegations.
