SMAP member Tsuyoshi Kusanagi (34) has been arrested for public indecency after causing a disturbance and running around naked in Hinokicho Park near Tokyo Midtown late on Wednesday night.

At around 3:00am on April 23, residents in that area notified police that a naked man was making a lot of noise in the park. Officers arrived to find a drunken Kusanagi, and after he refused to heed their warnings, they arrested him on the spot for public indecency. Kusanagi is said to have openly defied the officers, answering them with "What's wrong with me being naked?" According to police, a breath analysis test taken 5 hours after Kusanagi's arrest detected a BrAC of 0.8 mg/L, well over the legal limit.

Kusanagi has been part of the super-popular group SMAP since 1988. As he is one of the industry's biggest stars, the incident is likely to have a big impact. He is already being pulled from several advertisements, including commercials promoting Japan's transition to all-digital broadcasts by 2011.

One of the most recent reports says that he has lost his somewhat regular role on NHK's "PythagoraSwitch." Fuji TV will likely have the toughest decision to make, as Kusanagi is a regular on four of the network's popular shows.

Kusanagi also has a starring role with Yui Aragaki in the movie "Ballad: Namonaki Koi no Uta" (directed by Takashi Yamazaki). Filming has already wrapped up and the picture was scheduled for a September 5 release, putting distributor Toho in a difficult spot. TV Asahi is also considering their options, as it had planned to run some TV specials about the film on weekends from April 25 to May 18.

really2x pissed....
Kusanagi might even get fired from JE
I remember last 4 or 5 years ago,
2 NewS members, Uchi Hiroki & Kusano Hironori where even returned to the "trainee" status just because they got into "underage alcohol drinking"
this one, Kusanagi-kun's case is more worse...

Ah... it's just embarrassing for him really ! He was not doing anything THAT bad... he was drunk, naked, on his own, at 3 in the morning in a park ...We're not talking big crime here ! I find it extremely hypocritical from Johnny's Jimusho to play all shocked and all when you think about what Johnny himself has been doing to his boys (and probably to Kusanagi himself years ago !!) behind closed doors !!
It's extremely embarrasing, that's all... I don't think he will be fired from SMAP though (like the NEWS kids a few years back) because we're talking SMAP here, they are HUGE in Japan !!! Sacking him would make a bigger fuss about the whole thing...
I hope his career recovers eventually... He should just keep a low profile for a while... I wonder too how Nakai-kun is going to react about it ... Can't wait to find out !
Anyway, good luck Kusanagi-kun ! And make sure you stay indoors next time you decide to get wasted !
