Mexican pop star Juan Gabriel was arrested late Wednesday by federal authorities upon arrival at the Ciudad Juarez airport for alleged income tax evasion. Gabriel, who had arrived at the border city for a scheduled concert performance, is accused of not reporting 4.1 million pesos (about $380,000) in income.
The star arrest has been confirmed by Mexico's Attorney General's office, which issued the arrest warrant for Gabriel on Monday, and said that he has been released on a 4.1 million-peso bail early Thursday morning.
