Man in Dubai Beach-Sex Scandal Re-Arrested at Airport

A British man, who was convicted of having sex out of marriage on a Dubai beach in July, was re-arrested was just as he was about to board a plane leaving Dubai for the United Kingdom, according to the BBC.

Vince Acors, of London, was re-arrested because his flight confirmation was allegedly "not in order," his lawyer Andrew Crossley said.

The 34-year-old and Michelle Palmer were sentenced to three months in prison, fined $272 and ordered to be deported from Dubai after the incident. The two were charged with engaging in sex outside of marriage, drunkenness and public indecency.

Acors were expected to return to London Friday, but instead spent the weekend in jail. He was expected to leave Dubai sometime Tuesday.
