Hi, WR! Da Without a Trace. Sarà la stanchezza, ma che significa picked up? E' stato arrestato? Non credo, perché il tizio è in libertà!

He got picked up for kiddie porn five weeks ago.

E' stato :confused: per pedopornografia cinque settimane fa.

    Grazie, ragazzi! (la dialoghista perde colpi...)

    EDIT: ma si dice è stato fermato per pedopornografia? Quasi quasi accetterei il consiglio di F11...:D

    (E' stato) Pizzicato per pedopornografia

    Picked up = "arrested" in this context.

    There's also an idiomatic expression "to pick up" which is a reference to meeting somebody of the opposite sex (in a bar) and "taking them home" ;)

    In the context of arresting:

    We continued with our investigations all night and we picked him up the following morning.
    o
    When did you pick him up?

    In the context of flirting/dating:

    I went out to a bar last night and picked up a cute chick. (chick = girl)
    o
    Did you pick up last night?
