They were just itching to charge him with something.

A man in eastern China received a fine after a traffic camera using artificial intelligence captured him scratching his face, it's reported.

According to the Jilu Evening Post, the male motorist surnamed Liu was driving on Monday in Jinan, eastern Shandong province, and had raised his hand to scratch his face while passing a traffic camera. The next thing he knew, he'd received a notification instructing him that he had violated the laws of the road for "driving while holding a phone". A surveillance picture of his "offence" was attached. He was told that he would receive two points on his licence and was also ordered to pay a 50 yuan (£5.70; $7.25) fine.

A couple in the nearby town of Ystad, Sweden are accused of keeping their children "cut off from the world" as the newspapers put it.
They have 5 children, and it seems they have never attended school, can't tie their shoe laces, use the bathroom or any such simple things.
The police don't seem to be saying much, so the details could be different from what the newspapers report.

Couple kept their children isolated for nine years

Makes you wonder how often this sort of thing happens. One of the most famous cases was 'Genie' the feral child in Los Angeles.
