After that, he flew to Kansas City, where his team was playing that night in the AFC Championship game.

On the other hand, Yang was not charged in the multiagency anti-human trafficking operation in which 25 people were sent behind bars. Also, about 10 Asian day spas in South Florida were shut down.

Yang’s family has on its name several Florida spas and it’s Tokyo Day Spa branches have attracted the attention of at least two police agencies.
