Junnosuke Taguchi, a former member of Japanese boy band KAT-TUN, was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of possessing marijuana, the Narcotics Control Department said.
The department arrested Taguchi, 33, at his apartment in Tokyo as well as Rena Komine, 38, a former actress who has been living with him, for allegedly keeping a few grams of marijuana there.
Taguchi debuted in 2006 as a member of KAT-TUN, created by major entertainment agency Johnny & Associates Inc. He left the group in 2016 and became an independent artist.
In May 2017, another former member of KAT-TUN was arrested for possessing marijuana but was never indicted.
