Chiba has denied the charge, claiming he “doesn’t clearly recall” the episode

I think I would remember if I went to a kombini and dropped my pants!!

Q. Is that you on the CCTV?

A. Well, it looks like me...

Ha-ha. Was he drunk? If not, an insanity faker or something? At any rate, it puzzles me why the high school teacher dropped his pants at the convenience store. Now the security camera footage has done a lot of good again for arresting the suspect.

Cue people whining about his being drunk.

We all enjoy sex, we're human. But looking at a pair of pants? Weird!

Was he in the middle of a "Truth or Dare" game?

"Chiba has denied the charge, claiming he “doesn’t clearly recall” the episode."

@Strangerland - Cue people whining about his being drunk.

Being drunk should be part of the offense, not part of the defense. However, there is nothing in the article to state he was drunk.

It must be so comforting for the parents of his teenage female high school student to know their teacher is a sexually perverted nut case, NOT! He will give some lame excuse, be reprimanded, possibly have his pay cut for a few months and then be back in charge of his female high school students within a fortnight. Perfect!

"be back in charge of his female high school students within a fortnight"

If he does this in a kombini when he is merely a customer and there is CCTV, what does he do in the classroom when he is in a position of authority and there are no cameras?

Hands up if you know the answer...

Good thing he does not live in my home state of Texas and got caught, it may have meant "curtains" for him.

Was he so drunk he thought the register counter was the urinal?
