Shanghai, April 17 (IANS) A Chinese drug trafficker, who claimed to be an undercover reporter at an anti-drug raid, was arrested after he failed to explain a term commonly used by journalists, a media report said.

The drug trafficker was asked: “What is a lead?”

When he failed to respond, he was promptly arrested in Ningbo, eastern Zhejiang province, reported Shanghai Daily.

Li told police that he was an investigative reporter when a raid was carried out April 10 at a hotel room where drugs were traded.

Police nabbed him as he didn’t know that the word “lead” means the first paragraph of a news story, the Qinjiang Evening News reported.
