One of the world’s best League of Legends players has been found guilty of drug trafficking. Kurtis Lau Wai-Kin, or as you might know him, Toyz, has reportedly pleaded guilty to a drug trafficking charge in a Taiwanese court. According to a report from Taiwan’s Central News Agency, the former professional gamer had previously been charged with trafficking drugs on the internet.
During a June 16th court appearance with the Taichung District Prosecutor’s Office, Toyz pleaded guilty to the drug trafficking charges, eventually apologizing for his actions and urging others to stay away from drugs. Toyz said that he was regretful of the fact that he allowed himself to be exposed to drugs after finishing a stint in rehab.
Amazingly, this is not the first time that Wai-Kin had been accused of drug-related crimes. In 2019, he was accused of forming a drug syndicate that had bought and sold THC marijuana pods on the internet. Then, in September of 2021, Toyz was reportedly arrested after police found marijuana in his home because it is a class two drug in Taiwan.
This time around, Toyz was arrested by police officers that posed as potential drug buyers. He ended up being one of eight people arrested during this drug bust. At this time, it’s unclear what their sentencing will be like.
Kurtis Lau Wai-Kin is a world-famous gamer that helped the Taipei Assassins win the League of Legends Season Two World Championship in 2012. However, now that he has pleaded guilty to drug charges, it may be a while before Toyz picks up another controller.
