Known for his exceptional gaming skills, a devoted legion of fans, and troublesome behavior, Johnny had it all. Although he is an American streamer, he has been living in Japan for some time already.
However, from day one, he has been problematic, from harassing people to claiming to drop bombs on Japan again. All he did was create chaos in Japan, and following the chaos, news of Johnny’s arrest went viral as well.
But the question is, “What new issue did he create this time?” and “Why was Kick Streamer Johnny Somali arrested in Japan?” Join us as we unravel the enigma surrounding Johnny Somali’s arrest, examining the events leading up to the legal intricacies.
On August 30, 2023, Johnny was reported for trespassing on a construction site near Japan Bridge in Osaka city. Following the chaos, on 21 September 2023, he was streaming while the Japanese police were chasing him. In the stream, the Kick streamer said that the police had been tailing him for the last 30 minutes. Soon after, the Senkei News of Japan reported that Johnny Somali was arrested on charges of trespassing.
A few days back, the whole internet witnessed how Johnny Somali was knocked out by a man on the streets of Japan. Ever since the Kick streamer went to Japan, he did nothing but create nuisance, harass, and use inappropriate language. But it seems like he is finally reaping what he sowed.
On 21 September 2023, a video of Johnny being handcuffed by Japanese police went viral on X(formerly known as Twitter) and Reddit. Apparently, the clip was from Johnny’s live streaming. The Senkei News revealed that a Somali was arrested for trespassing on the construction site near Japan Bridge in Osaka city.
Furthermore, the channel reported that the trespassing happened on 31st August 2023. It was also noted that Somali even called one of the workers “Fukushima.” Shortly after, Japanese police traced his activities, resulting in his arrest.
At the time of arrest, Johnny was roaming on the streets while doing a live streaming. Soon, he noticed police were following him, which he even noticed and told the viewers on the stream, saying that he had been followed by the police for 30 minutes. Another moment, he got handcuffed by the police.
People on the internet are also speculating that the arrest was also influenced by the kick streamer’s behavior. Somali was also detained by law enforcement before this incident of arrest. But this was the first time when he was arrested with so much police force surrounding him.
The kick streamer hasn’t updated his fans regarding the arrest. The stance of the authorities is unclear, whether he will be punished or not. Prior to his arrest, another streamer was arrested for trespassing and was detained as well. People are wondering if the streamer will face the same fate or if he will be allowed to stay in the country.
Ever since the video went viral, people over the internet have finally realized their breath in relief. The guy was nothing but a bundle of problems roaming on the streets. People are even demanding that he not be released, saying, “Don’t let him out, Japanese cops-san.” Seems like Somali has gained a lot of haters in just a few months.
