An Indonesian man who was arrested for hacking into an electronic billboard in Jakarta and displaying a Japanese adult film could face seven years in prison, police said Wednesday.

The 24-year-old IT specialist, who broadcast 10 minutes of the porn film Tokyo Hot on a busy intersection, could be fined more than $1 million alongside his jail sentence, according to Rappler.

The event was captured by various motorists and went viral on social media.

The Japan Times reported that police and cybercrime experts arrested the man, identified by his initials SAR, on Tuesday. Police said the man admitted responsibility, claiming he did it for fun.

Access to porn sites is blocked in the Muslim-majority nation and romantic scenes are often blurred or cut by state censors.
