Actor Tony Eusoff (pic) has apologised to his fans and vows to mend his ways following his recent arrest in Singapore for drug possession.

In a post on his Facebook page on Saturday, the 38-year-old actor said that he wanted to seek forgiveness from all, especially from his family, friends, his fans and the media.

"I admit that my actions were erroneous and against existing laws.

"This incident happened because of no other reason except for my own carelessness and immature thinking at that time," he said.

Tony also said that he was aware that his actions could have a negative influence, especially among the younger generation, which was something he regretted.

He said he was ready to accept his punishment if found guilty.

Tony also said would learn from the incident and now wished to redeem himself and correct his ways.

"Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers," he said.

On Friday, a Singaporean news portal reported that the actor, whose real name is Anthony Joseph Anak Hermas Rajiman, was charged with the possession of Class A drugs under Singapore's Drug Abuse Act.

Tony was charged with possession of the drugs at the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) bus arrival hall at the Tuas checkpoint on March 12.

If found guilty, he could be jailed up to 10 years, and fined as much as S$20,000 or both.

The case will be rementioned at the National Court in Singapore on April 12.
