According to Sankei News, Somali, whose real name is Ismael Ramsey Khalid, investigators arrested him for breaking into the site of a planned hotel.
While at the scene, the live streamer is said to have repeatedly shouted “Fukushima,” referring to the massive nuclear disaster at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.
Over the past few months in Japan, Somali has frequently made headlines for his antics, upsetting locals with his racist outbursts and even being attacked for his comments .
Somali was briefly banned from Kick for his actions, but was allowed back on the platform just 72 hours later.
The arrest comes just days after Twitch streamer Meowko was harassed by Somali, leading her to call on other sites to permanently ban him.
Somalia has yet to update fans about his arrest and it is unclear whether he will be allowed to stay in the country or what penalties he will face from Japanese authorities.
