Japanese pop singer apologizes for nude behaviourApril 25th, 2009 - 1:38 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr 25 (ANI): A Japanese pop singer, arrested for public indecency, after he was found drunk and naked in a Tokyo park has apologized to his fans for his “shameful” conduct.
Tsuyoshi Kusanagi, 34, who was arrested on April 23 from the park, had allegedly been sitting on the grass, undressed and heavily intoxicated from 10 glasses of Japanese rice wine and beer.
“I drank a lot and did not know what I was doing,” the BBC quoted Kusanagi as saying on April 24 after being released by police.
“I deeply apologise to fans for causing so much trouble and worry,” he added.
The singer, who had shot to fame as a member of 1980s boy band SMAP, has not been charged for the incident, though his arrest has been a major news story in Japan, as he is the face of a government campaign to get the public to switch to digital television. (ANI)
