Hayden Panettiere Says Warrant Filed for Her Arrest

Former "Guiding Light" star Hayden Panettiere is a wanted woman after interfering in a dolphin hunt in Japan last month.

"I learned that they have an arrest warrant out for me in Japan," the Heroes star, 18, told E! News Wednesday. "We just found out." has learned the warrant is for obstruction of commerce.

The actress, along with other activists, attempted to block a pod of dolphins from being led into a nearby cove for massacre by fishermen in the southwestern Japanese town of Taiji on October 30. The fishermen insisted hunting dolphins is a Japanese custom, and Panettiere had no business interfering.

To avoid arrest for trespassing by the Japanese national police, however, Panettiere said she fled to the Japanese city of Osaka and left the country immediately.

Panettiere isn't sweating the arrest warrant news.

When E! asked what the warrant could mean for her, she quipped, "Potentially jail, but I doubt it."
