Police in Oimachi, Kanagawa Prefecture, have arrested two brothers, aged 18 and 21, on suspicion of throwing 500 raw eggs from a narrow bridge onto cars driving nine meters below on the Tomei Expressway.
Police said Tuesday they plan to send two more friends of the brothers, aged 17 and 18, to prosecutors, Fuji TV reported. The four will be charged with damaging property and endangering people's lives, police said.
The four are suspected of throwing eggs at cars coming in their direction from the bridge early in the morning of Sept 20 and again at around 10 p.m. on the same day.
According to police, a total of 54 cars suffered damage, including broken windshields, in the two incidents.
Police - who had been notified in the morning -- were on the lookout that night and found one of the suspects about 1.5 kilometers away from the bridge with eggs in the pockets of his pants. Police said the group stole some of the eggs from a supermarket.
The 18-year-old was quoted by police as saying they got a kick out of seeing the surprised look on drivers' faces when they got out of their cars after being hit with the eggs.© Japan Today
