The former husband of pop singer Noriko Sakai has been arrested again for possession of stimulants, police said Wednesday.
Yuichi Takaso, 44, a self-professed surfer, was arrested in 2009 on drug charges. Sakai went missing for awhile after his arrest before surfacing, at which time she also was arrested for possession of drugs. Sakai was sentenced to 18 months in prison, suspended for three years, and a media image rehabilitation campaign followed which blamed her drug use on her husband's bad influence.
In the latest case, Takaso was arrested after he allegedly had a container of 11.7 milliliters of a stimulant substance (AMT) mailed to his parents' house in Tokyo's Minato Ward in April, police said, according to TV Asahi. His father reported the delivery of the package to police, saying that his son had gone bad again, TV Asahi reported.
