According to Yomiuri Online, the Fukuoka Prefectural Police has arrested the guitarist Kosuga Tsuyoshi for possession of marijuana. Kosuga is one of the members of the music band CRO-MAGNON, who composed the theme songs of Hyouge Mono. Kosuge visited a convenience store in the morning of April 30th and left two pieces of marijuana in a plastic bag. Police arrested him when he visited the store again in the afternoon. He deposed that he obtained the marijuana at a live session he performed at.

I hope this was sarcasm.
Still, that guy was an idiot. Speaking of which, I believe Paul McCartney was arrested there once for the same thing, just not for as dumb as going back to the scene...
and also, I like the theme song and he probably came up with the guitar part while high; Sounds like it's from the 70s.
