6 Comments

Police in Abashiri, Hokkaido, have arrested a 27-year-old man on suspicion of assault after he walked into a police station and punched a police officer in the face.

Police said the incident occurred at around 7 p.m. on Saturday. Hokkaido Broadcasting Corp reported that the man, who is a delivery company worker, entered the police station and when a 41-year-old police sergeant asked what he could do for him, the man repeatedly said, “I don’t know, I don’t know” before punching him.

The police officer suffered a minor facial injury.

During questioning, the man told the police officer he hit, “I’m sorry for doing that,” and then began speaking incoherently.

He is literally looking for trouble, anyway in Hokkaido again?

If I were that cop, his beating would make worldwide headlines and make him extra sorry for doing that.

Wow! That’s asking for trouble. I thought if I ever felt I was about to do something terrible it might be good to punch a cop to keep me in jail for my own safety.

Someone is in dire need of therapy and medication.

Here's a clue as to what's going on here -

'....and then began speaking incoherently'.

So, guess what's coming next - he'll be claiming the 'I can't remember a thing, I must have been drunk at the time' defence.

Hopefully the police will still press assault charges, and the guy will have quite a bit of explaining to do in front of the judge.
