Victor Emmanuel, the son of Italy's last king, was arrested Friday on criminal charges, the ANSA and Apcom news agencies reported.

The reports said Victor Emmanuel was arrested in the afternoon on a warrant issued by prosecutors in Potenza, southern Italy. The charges are those of criminal association aimed at exploiting prostitution, said ANSA and Apcom.

No other details were immediately provided.

Victor Emmanuel and his family returned to Italy in 2002 after a half-century of exile imposed because of the monarchy's support for fascist dictator Benito Mussolini. A law approved earlier that year overturned a constitutional ban.

Victor Emmanuel was 9 when he left his homeland. His son, Emmanuel Filiberto, was born and raised in Switzerland. The family spent most of the years of banishment in Geneva.
