Boyband Star Arrested For Drunken Public Nakedness

(kyodo.co.jp) Tsuyoshi Kusanagi, a member of the Japanese [boyband] pop group SMAP, was arrested Thursday for public indecency after stripping naked while under the influence of alcohol at a Tokyo park, causing ripples not only in the nation but in South Korea, where the singer, who is fluent in Korean, is also popular.

After arresting the 34-year-old Kusanagi, police searched his home in Tokyo's Minato Ward, spurring numerous telephone calls from his fans in protest.

The suspect admitted to stripping naked and told investigators, ''I regret what I did. I don't remember how I went to the park, and why I became naked,'' according to the police. - more on this story
