An intoxicated student illegally entered the grounds of the home of Uniqlo group president Tadashi Yanai on the morning of Nov 10, police said Tuesday.
The 24-year-old man was arrested by police for climbing over the boundary wall of the Shibuya property belonging to Yanai, founder and president of Fast Retailing, of which Uniqlo is a subsidiary, TV Asahi reported.
During police questioning, the man was quoted by police as saying that he was drunk and didn't remember a thing.
