"On February 21st, the Japan Shooto Association announced the suspension of Norifumi KID Yamamoto and every fighter under the KILLER BEE umbrella, in all of Shooto's amateur and professional competitions. The term is indefinite.
Chairman Naoki Sakurada and Bureau Chief Taro Wakabayashi, on the Shooto PR Blog, unveiled the details and reason for this decision.
According to the official statement, after the Shooto world middleweight championships, held at Yoyogi No.1 Gymnasium on February 17th, while the doctor was checking up on Akira Kikuchi in the dressing room, KILLER BEE head KID Yamamoto complained, and insulted a doctor with intemparrate language which resulted in a violent act.
Japan Shooto Association also demanded a proper apology from KID Yamamoto and till then, he will not be allowed to be in any official Shooto fight show.
KID Yamamoto thought the cut Kikuchi sustained during the fight against Shinya Aoki was from an elbow shot.
KID Yamamoto then blamed the doctor for not recognizing it from the type of cut and ended up throwing a punch at him backstage.
The cut, indeed, came from Aoki's strike but not from the elbow.
Aoki walked to the ropes when Kikuchi got on his back, stuck his upper body outside the ropes, threw a back hand blow like punch, and wound up scraping Kikuchi's skin with his glove. It was not an elbow shot, and even if it was, the repercussions are severe for all associated with Yamamoto."

So much for Kid having "changes his ways." This guy is a scumbag and a punk. He is too attracted to the wannabe thug lifestyle and it shows through his actions.
