A 37-year-old woman has been arrested for violating anti-stalker laws after sending 209 "fan" letters to former ROGUE rock band singer Atsushi Okuno between Dec 3 and Dec 10.
Okuno, 50, has been confined to a wheelchair since an accident at a construction site in 2008 and now divides his time as an actor, singer and author.
The suspect, identified as Yumi Ishida, was quoted by police as saying, "I am the ultimate loyal and devoted fan. I felt truly connected to Okuda-san through my letters," TV Asahi reported.
Police said Ishida had been arrested in September for sending nearly 30,000 emails to Okuno since July 2012. She was fined and issued a written notice to cease and desist.© Japan Today
