Police in Tokyo have arrested the 32-year-old son of actor Akira Shimizu on suspicion of assaulting his wife.
According to police, Ryotaro Shimizu, an impressionist in the entertainment industry, slammed his wife’s head into a dining table at their home after a heated argument at around 6:45 p.m. on April 9, Fuji TV reported. The woman, who is in her 30s, suffered injuries to her neck that required a week to heal. She filed a complaint with police on April 12 and said she and her husband had been quarreling a lot recently.
Police said Shimizu has admitted partially to the charge. He was quoted as saying he grabbed his wife by the hair and slung her into a sofa, not a table.
Shimizu has been in trouble with the law twice before. In 2016, he was caught at an illegal gambling den and was arrested for illegal stimulant use in 2017.© Japan Today
