Same story happened to Sophus Lie the Norwegian mathematicIan who was arrested by French police as a German spy during the 1870 Franco-Prussian War, because Lie scribbled some strange symbols suspected to be the secret military codes. You can’t blame the police, Lie mathematics (Lie Group) was also incomprehensible to even mathematicians — it was a totally new math invented by Lie.
