Toyz won the 2012 League of Legends World Championship in Los Angeles with his team Taipei Assassins.

The tournament is the largest professional event in League of Legends, similar to the Champions League in soccer, and awards over $2 million in prize money to the winning teams each year.

A little over 10 years after that huge achievement, a district court in the city of Taichung, Taiwan found Toyz guilty of four counts of drug trafficking and two counts of attempted drug trafficking.

According to a report by Yahoo Hong Konghe was first arrested in September last year on suspicion of selling cannabis online.

Police found and confiscated more than 200 pods of marijuana when Lau was arrested.

He was released on bail in January this year for 1.5 million New Taiwan Dollars (around £40,000 at the time).

Taiwan’s drug law lists cannabis as a Category 2 illegal drug, and offenders selling such drugs face up to seven years in prison and hefty fines of up to 5 million New Taiwan dollars (£133,500).

After completing the investigation, the Taichung District Court indicted Toyz on six counts along with seven other people involved in the crimes.

Toyz pleaded guilty at trial and his defense claimed that the professional player was unfamiliar with Taiwan’s laws, hoping to get him a reduced sentence.

The four-year and two-month prison sentence imposed by the district court this week is open to appeal.
