Arrest Warrant out for Hayden Panettiere's Arrest in Japan

E! Online is reporting that there is an arrest warrant out for Hayden Panettiere's arrest in Japan.

Her heroic dolphin-saving mission last month wasn't without its consequences.

"I learned that they have an arrest warrant out for me in Japan," the Heroes star told E! News exclusively Wednesday. "We just found out."

Panettiere, 18, was part of a convoy of activists from the U.S. and Australia who on Oct. 30 paddled out on surfboards to protest the annual slaughter of dolphins and whales by Japanese fisherman.

Her group attempted to reach a pod of dolphins before it was driven into a nearby cove and massacred, but they were blocked by a fishing boat before they could reach the sea creatures.

Now it looks like the scare's not quite over for the actress.

When asked what the arrest warrant could mean, Panettiere replied, "Potentially jail, but I doubt it."

She said she was thrilled that the incident was receiving international attention, as it could result in educating others about the dolphins' plight.

"In this town, you tend to be able to get publicity when you're not wearing underwear or [you're] in rehab," Panettiere said.

"I was very excited that people were interested in what we did."

And the actress isn't letting a little thing like a warrant keep her from her cause. "I'd do it again," she said. "Very possibly, might do it again."

In this world of Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan's I am so happy to see a star doing something for good in this world. I hope she doesn't get arrested!!!
