42-year-old pop star Chen Kuo-hua (陳國華) of 忍者少年 fame skipped out on his court date related to a theft charge on April 20 at Taipei District Court, UDN reported. The Wanhua District police department arrested Chen at his home on the 22nd.
Chen’s attorney, however, claims that his client never received notification of the court appointment and thus shouldn’t be arrested.
Chen fell out of the limelight in 2004 and allegedly into debt due to drug use. He was then caught stealing bread and milk from a 7-Eleven in Taipei last October.
