Today in Flackery

Aging Japanese actress Noriko Sakai, a sort of Asian Doris Day, just surrendered to police after a few days on the lam. Police had searched her apartment and found a small amount of a yet-unnamed illegal drug. This is how her PR spokesman handled the arrest:

"Noriko Sakai was arrested last night and we would like to offer an apology to all her fans for the trouble caused," Masahisa Aizawa, president of Sakai's management company, Sun Music, said on Sunday.

"I would like her to reflect on what she has done and feel the weight of the crime she has committed [and] I would strongly urge her to seek rehabilitation."

I can't imagine how Aizawa would handle Paris Hilton or Lindsay Lohan's troubles.
