Chinese singer Mao Ning, has been arrested at an apartment in Beijing's Chaoyang District this morning by Beijing police for drug offences, according to the official weibo account of Beijing Municipal Public Security Bureau.

Mao confessed to have taken methamphetamine, as his urine test's result showed up positive.

The mobile number of the singer¡¯s agent cannot be reached since the news was released.

The 47-year-old singer was one of the hottest singers during the 90s in China.

He is best known for the song ¡°Billows are as of old¡± and some love songs with the then popular female singer Yang Yuying.

Mao chose to quit during the peak period of his singer career.

While in 2012, he came back with a new album.  

The case is the latest addition to a series of such incidents involving top entertainers in China this year.

Earlier this month, another singer Yin Xiangjie was also arrested for drug offences.
