SHOW TRANSCRIPT

Former Nissan chairman Carlos Ghosn has been arrested again.

According to several reports, Japanese prosecutors arrested Ghosn Thursday on new allegations of financial misconduct.

He told CNN via a spokesperson: "My arrest this morning is outrageous and arbitrary. ... I will not be broken. I am innocent of the groundless charges and accusations against me."

This is the fourth time prosecutors have arrested the auto executive. Before this latest arrest, Ghosn had been released on bail after spending more than 100 days in jail.

He was first arrested in November for allegedly underreporting his income by more than $44 million over a five-year period. Since then, Japanese authorities have charged Ghosn with two counts of underreporting his income, as well as breach of trust.
