Sometimes, fans can take it very far. Back in December, police reported yet another incident of fans behaving very badly, this time with NGT48 idol Maho Yamaguchi. According to NHK News, two men reportedly assaulted the idol outside of her own home. Luckily, the police would later arrest them.
NHK News reported that the two suspects are unemployed university students, and both are 25-years-old. They apparently tried to grab Yamaguchi’s face as she was entering her home in Niigata.
The police have reported that they only wanted to talk to the idol. They apparently did not think it would be a big deal, and would escalate to their arrest. Both suspects also denied the assault, and fortunately for them, the police would later release them without any charges.
