A statement was issued by Norteno singer Ramon Ayala in regards to his recent arrest in Mexico.
The singer says his arrest at a drug cartel party last month is a case of simply being in the wrong place. In the statement, he says Mexico's conflict over drug trafficking "Puts everyone at risk of being in unpleasant situations" and he wants to stress that he has based his career on work and dedication. Ayala says he can't comment on details of his arrest because the investigation continues, but his lawyer said previously that the singer didn't know he had been hired by drug traffickers.
