Kunimitsu no Matsuri Actor, Singer Manabu Oshio Arrested

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins

Actor and singer Manabu Oshio (Kunimitsu no Matsuri's Mutou) was arrested on Monday on suspicion of providing drugs to a woman who was found dead in an apartment on August 2. He was previously arrested for stimulant use on August 3, but he said then that the drugs were given to him by the woman, and was released with a suspended sentence. However, police arrested him again Monday when two ex-girlfriends of Oshio told police Oshio had given them drugs — thus supporting police's suspicion that Oshio acquired the drugs himself.

Police are considering charging Oshio for negligence in the 30-year-old woman's death.

In August, actress and singer Noriko Sakai was also arrested for stimulant use, and was also handed a suspended sentence in November.
