The highly publicized arrest of actress-singer 酒井法子 / Noriko Sakai on drug charges presented the many TV viewers watching a live broadcast of Sakai being taken into custody with the curious sight of an otaku fan of ero-mahjong anime Saki flashing promotional art of the show in front of TV cameras.

Sakai had gone missing since her husband was arrested for the possession of illegal stimulants earlier this week and she too came under suspicion of drug possession, but was arrested on August 7; all this created a major media furor as Sakai is quite pretty.

These images come from a broadcast of her being taken into custody at a Shibuya police station:

He can also be seen in action starting from the 1:19 mark of this Youtube video of the Jouhou 7days Newscaster program, if you are so inclined…

The motivation for this is perhaps better left unknown…
