The popular radio show This American Life has a story of “Luke” from Minnisota who spent 8 months in a Chinese Jail. His Shenzhen jail detention was the result of a head-but after being punched when accidentally hitting someone with a soccer ball after a soccer game. He refused to pay the guy 2000USD and ended up in the slammer waiting to go in front of a judge. Listen to how he had to recite poetry and do the Hokey Pokey to entertain the jail house officials.
