An update on the aforementioned Livedoor scandal:

Horie "I Can Buy Anything" Takafumi and three other high-level Livedoor executives were arrested this evening. At this moment, the four of them are in transport, courtesy of the chihou kensatsu (Regional Prosecutors). Every TV station is currently showing off their helicopter footage of the police convoy cruising through central Tokyo.

It seems unlikely that any of them will do time, but at least Horie-mon's pop music career has been nipped in the bud.
