Was there even a reason, or is this just what happens when he's drunk? That's a lot of alcohol in any case!

And a fine upstanding example of the Japanese police force he is too.

Wonder what he is like on duty?

These two are old enough to know better anyway.

Dayum... Sounds like he was about to take her off the set....she must of craked on him and he "typically" exploded. What way to celebrate..or was it the culmination of his celebration?

betterdays...couldn't agree with you more. Especially considering he's a man and police officer, hopefully a bit 'bigger' than the average bear. I'm a woman and even I don't consider 5 beers and 500 mls of sake to be all that much! Hell...a lot of the guys I know can down a whole case (24) of beer and still function!

A beer, a few cans of Chu-hai and 650ml of sake... about a decent night where I'd still be going to work the next day. Not that it's anything to be proud of, but I've had a LOT bigger night, and I got out of it without bashing my girlfriend too.

I guess he didn't like her gift

Maybe he didn't get a birthday cake.

or didn't get the gift from her that he wanted.

Everyone's assuming they drank equal amounts, but my experience has been that the guys will drink more than the gals. What's your assessment of his state if he had most of the sake, most of the Chi-hai, and both beers?

Maybe his girlfriend forget to kiss him,hug him,cuddle him or make love to him on the day of his birthday.Maybe he expect too much from his girlfriend that's why he stored too much alcohol or malt on his head and gone wild and beat her.By the way who cares?Maybe by this time they are on each others arms again apologyze each other for the crazyness they have done.
