Not that accurate a translation as I'm not too fond with kanji. I had a laugh with the katakana though. >_________> Also, done mostly for people to understand.
<Gun and Sword Control Law Violation> "Death Note" artist arrested on suspicion of knife possession.
Takeshi Obata (37) artist best known for his works on "Hikaru no Go" and "Death Note"
Ah screw it. It's a pain trying to get all of it. So have a summary. From what I understand, he got caught after he was asked to stop due to driving without headlights/a damaged headlight, and was arrested after the cops saw an illegal knife inside his car.
The last paragraph is about his debut in 89 and him winning the 7th O. Tezuka award in 2003 thanks to HnG.
Maybe if he was arrested earlier, the thing could be put off hold and a better ending could have been written no?
