Superstar, club culture DJ David Morales has been arrested in Japan on the suspicion of drug smuggling after customs officials claimed they discovered ecstasy in his suitcase.
Police have accused the 56-year-old American of possessing 0.3 grams of MDMA into the country when he arrived on a flight from Hong Kong on Saturday. The small number of granules of the euphoria-inducing drug were found in the Grammy Award-winner’s luggage during a search.
“He was arrested for allegedly violating the law on narcotics and psychotropics control,” authorities said. When accused, Morales told police that the drug did not belong to him and had likely been slipped into his case by someone else.
