JAKARTA, Indonesia — Police say they have detained a popular Indonesian singer over a sex-tape scandal.
Pop star Nazril Irham, better known as Ariel, could face jail time if found guilty of violating the country's strict anti-pornography law.
Two separate videos allegedly showing the 28-year-old in bed – in each, with a different celebrity girlfriend – started circulating on the Internet in early June.
The scandal topped newscasts for weeks and dominated chatter on social-networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.
National police deputy spokesman Brig. Gen. Zainuri Lubis said the singer turned himself Tuesday after he was named a suspect in the case.
Authorities have until Wednesday morning to determine if there is enough evidence to charge him.
