A 36-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of drunk driving after he drove his car into a police koban in front of Keihan-yamashina Station in Kyoto.
According to police, the incident occurred at 5:45 p.m. on Saturday. Fuji TV reported there were three police officers in the koban at the time but none were injured.
Police identified the driver as Hirotate Mashimo. A breathalyzer test showed that Mashimo's blood alcohol content was over the legal limit for driving, police said.
Mashimo was quoted as saying he intended to park in front of the station but mistakenly pressed the accelerator instead of the brake.© Japan Today
