Prosecutors say Taiwanese-Japanese starlet Makiyo has been barred from leaving Taiwan pending a probe into her alleged involvement in a drunk beating incident in Taipei.
The Taipei Prosecutors Office said Tuesday the 27-year-old video clip actress is accused of kicking a taxi door after her companion dragged the driver out and beat him.
Makiyo has apologized and pledged to stop drinking in the wake of the Thursday night incident.
Takateru Tomoyori of Japan was placed on bail pending the filing of formal charges, possibly for attempted homicide, according to prosecutors.
The driver suffered a brain hemorrhage and two fractured ribs.
News reports said the driver asked Tomoyori and Makiyo to get out of his cab after they refused to wear seat belts.
