Report: Michael Elgin Arrested In Japan IMPACT

Michael Elgin (real name Aaron Frobel) was reportedly arrested in Japan ahead of a scheduled appearance for Pro Wrestling NOAH.

Ahead of the July 10 Shizuoka event, NOAH announced a schedule change due to Frobel’s absence.

Per Cassidy Haynes of, Frobel was arrested during that weekend for theft. The report noted that Frobel was arrested after stealing protein powder.

According to the report, the belief is that Frobel is facing up to five years in jail, unless a potential deal is agreed upon where charges would be dropped, but Frobel would be deported and not allowed to return to Japan.

Frobel has since taken to Twitter to address the situation. Noting that he is traveling back to Canada, but claiming he hasn’t been deported, Elgin wrote:

“I’m not going to bother saying what happened, but I am going to say. I was not charged for stealing protein. I’m not charged at all, I am not facing jail time. I’m also not deported. I am going to Canada to be with my family after the passing of an extremely close family member.

“I completely understand people don’t ever want to believe anything other than what they wish were true. I’m not going to debate with people. But, I am on my scheduled flight home. Also, first class. Doesn’t seem like deportation.”

We will continue to provide additional updates on the situation as they become available.
