DJ Mark Lewis GHB Airport Arrest in Korea

LA DJ Mark Lewis Drug Bust in Korea

Veteran British-born LA-based DJ/producer Mark Lewis has been arrested in Korea, according to the Korea Times. Video footage shows the Grammy-nominated artist — who has toured extensively over the years with Paul Oakenfold — at a customs checkpoint at Incheon International Airport with a bottle filled with 3.78 liters of gamma hydroxybutyrate (GHB), also known as the date rape drug, into Korea four times from January to June. The value is estimated at 370 million won ($340,000) and the quantity enough to dose 1,000 people. Police said a chief at a Korean pharmaceutical company and his twin brother are suspected to have funded Lewis’ trip to Korea. Lewis, 52, reportedly denies the allegations, saying he did not know the water bottle was filled with drugs. Er, okay there Marky boy! According to his SoundCloud page, Lewis has a DJ residency at club Octagon in Seoul. We’ll update you as this story develops.
