BRUSSELS (AP) — Belgium’s federal police say a British con artist who is the subject of a Netflix documentary has been arrested in Belgium. He had fled France where he had injured two police officers. The police said 51-year-old Robert Hendy-Freegard was expected to appear before a Belgian judge on Saturday. He was arrested Friday on a highway east of Brussels in Groot-Bijgaarden. Hendy-Freegard had been on the run since last week when he hit two officers with his car as he was fleeing a police raid at his home in central France. Netflix released a documentary this year called “The Puppet Master: Hunting the Ultimate Conman” about his life.
