Pop star Jacky Cheung has achieved “Hexa kill” recognition after another outlaw was grabbed by cops at his concert in Hohhot on Friday, bringing the number tally up to 6 since his nationwide tour kicked off three months ago.
Someone is apparently not reading the news. According to local media, the suspect, surnamed Wang, was captured during security checks before the performance. The fugitive has been trying to dodge police for months before he braved rain to support his idol and was identified by facial recognition cameras at the stadium's entrance, which was connected to the police database.
Cheung, nicknamed Hong Kong’s “God of Songs,” got dubbed “Fugitive Trapper” after multiple arrests at his concerts.
The first incident took place in April during Cheung’s stop in the Jiangxi’s capital Nanchang. A suspect identified as Ao attended the show that was crowded by thousands of fans and became the first “victim” of the artificial intelligence devices put up at the concert venue.
He was cited as telling the pursuers: "I am a fan of Jacky Cheung. If I couldn't sell the tickets, I would enjoy the concert myself."
Ao was wanted for ticket scalping and thefts.
“These fugitives have some issues with their morality, but at least their music taste is pretty decent,” one person commented on social media.
“Please pay attention to those who want to return their tickets,” someone joked, since Cheung's capbility to catch outlaws has gone viral.
Cheung said he really appreciated everyone who comes to his concerts, “everyone needs music, no matter who it is," Cheung said.
The next stop of his tour will be the Henan city of Luoyang on Sunday, where police said they were “well prepared", according to its official Sina Weibo account.
