Japan stunned by pop star’s arrest
Japan has been stunned by the arrest of one of its cleanest-cut stars for public indecency.

Singer Tsuyoshi Kusanagi, of boy band SMAP, was found drunk and naked in a public park in Tokyo early on Thursday morning.

The 34-year-old was alone and shrieking at the top of his voice, according to media reports, and demanded of an officer trying to question him: "What's wrong with being naked?"

Kusanagi shot to fame almost 20 years ago as a member of SMAP. The group's five members have gone on to monopolise Japanese TV screens in everything from drama to variety and even cookery shows.

"He has such a clean image," one woman said, adding: "He doesn't seem like that kind of person."

The incident risks damaging the commercial viability of SMAP, whose members, especially heart-throb Takuya Kimura, are popular with advertisers. Toyota has already said it is pulling commercials starring Kusanagi.

And even the government showed its ire, with Communications Minister Kunio Hatoyama angry as the actor is the face of a campaign to get the public to switch to digital television.

Kusanagi's agency, Johnny & Associates, a big name in the Japanese entertainment world, issued an apology saying: "We apologise deeply for the trouble and worry caused to everyone, especially his fans."

It added it will make a further announcement on Kusanagi's future career.
