SMAP member arrested - 04-23-2009, 01:09 AM

Tsuyoshi Kusanagi, a member of the highly successful singing group SMAP, has been arrested on a charge of indecent exposure, according to Yahoo Japan News.

Yahoo Japan says that Kusanagi was making all kinds of noises while being naked around 3:00 AM on April 23 in a park in the Akasaka district of Tokyo. The police came and tried to calm down the naked top star. Since he didn't obey them, he was arrested.

I hate to sound like a tabloid reporter on JF, but this is going to be major news the next few days here in Japan because SMAP owns Japanese TV!

Funny.

I just watched the news on this. When told by officers he needed to put clothes on he responded "What's wrong with being naked?"

Apparently he was drunk and he does like the sauce. The end of a career, possibly? Public scandals are not taken lightly, especially for Johnny's singers.

Rain is falling all around
Thunder rain and wind
A song of storms begins

Play a song, A melody
Then everybody will see
The hero of time
Has come

Nothing like just, simply one guy wanted to study overseas for a while, which he did. They said he wasn't going to be let back into the group, but that didn't seem to bother him (he went to study in the US, and I think Mexico anyway) and when he came back to Japan they let him in.

One other member of SMAP was kicked out of the band for 2 years after fleeing an illegal parking ticket because the paparazzi were trying to take pictures of the girl he had in his car.

This is much bigger than that. Kusanagi is the spokesman for the digital conversion and does commercials for diapers and other products which reflect his "clean" and "soft" image. He was buck-naked and the police had to wrap in in a blue tarp. Five hours after the arrest, at 8:00AM he was still intoxicated...which makes me think it might be more than alcohol.

Wow, this is the end for him.

Especially as his character is presented as the polar opposite of someone who would do something like this. If anyone could get away with it, it wouldn`t be Tsuyoshi.

Just... Wow.


Make the move!

I hope not. 1) He wasn't driving and 2) so far it sounds like it was only alcohol (but copious amounts) and 3) there was no "victim" (besides the people who couldn't sleep), but indeed, he has the opposite of a bad-boy image. Johnny doesn't like this sort of thing, and he might be too old to bounce back from a two-year suspension, for example. The question is, what happens to SMAP? Forced break up? Temporary? Permanent?
