TOKYO (TR) – Following her arrest last month for hemp possession, DJ and model Ayumi Takahashi has been arrested again — this time for stimulant use, reports the Sankei Shimbun (Sept. 14).
Takahashi, 26, residing in Tokyo’s Itabashi Ward, was cited today by officers of the the Tanishi station of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police for violating the stimulants control law. “I received it from my boyfriend’s older brother,” she is quoted as telling police.
Investigators said that the supplier is a 33-year-old member of the Kyokuto-kai crime syndicate and currently under arrest for a separate incident.
While under arrest on August 29, Takahashi tested positive for stimulants during a urine analysis.
Takahashi is a popular model, often appearing in television commercials and in magazines. She is also active as a club DJ.
