Hidetada Yamagishi appears on Pro Bodybuilding Weekly

March 18, 2008


Hidetada Yamagishi made his first public comments since his recent run-in with the California legal system Pro Bodybuilding Weekly on Monday. Yamagishi, who was originally detained at Los Angeles International Airport on December 8 and charged with nine counts of possession of controlled substances, spent 61 days in the North County Correctional Facility in Castaic, California. Eventually, all but one of the charges were dismissed and Yamagishi was allowed to return to his home country of Japan after having his visa revoked.

Yamagishi is currently back in Japan and is reapplying for entry to the United States. He hopes to compete in the Pro Bodybuilding Weekly Championships in Tampa, Florida on August 9, 2008.
