NAGANO -- Egyptian sumo wrestler Osunaarashi is suspected of a second count of driving without a license, local prosecutors announced on Feb. 8.

The 25-year-old juryo wrestler from the Otake stable has been referred to public prosecutors on suspicion of driving without a valid license -- a violation of the Road Traffic Act -- after an accident on Jan 3, when his car collided with another vehicle in Yamanouchi, Nagano Prefecture. However, officials with the Nagano District Public Prosecutors Office now believe he also drove without a license on Jan. 1 in the prefectural city of Nakano.
