Model Timi Hsiao and her boyfriend Li Yuan-Bin were arrested on the 20th for suspicion of drug abuse. During the investigation, she revealed that she has attended “dinners” with the riches arranged by Ling Wei-Wei. The police are rumored to have obtained a book that contains the names of those who have participated. Ling Wei-Wei claimed it was only an accounting book for tracking her expenses. She insisted that she had only arranged “dinners” for her clients. She said it's outside of her control on what they choose to do after dinner.  Ling Wei-Wei was said to have charged NT$ 60,000 for each referral.

Timi Hsiao said she began using drugs a year ago and had participated in at least 10 arranged “dinners”, but she denied being involved in prostitution.  Timi Hsiao is currently released on NT$20,000 bail.
