17 Comments

Police in Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture, have arrested a 48-year-old man on suspicion of property destruction after he poured urine on a pachinko machine, causing it to malfunction.

According to police, Takahiro Shionuma, who works for the Miyagi Prefecture Labor Bureau, poured urine on the machine at a parlor in Taihaku Ward at around 1:05 p.m. on Saturday, Kyodo News reported. The machine’s alarm went off, prompting parlor staff to report the incident to police.

Security camera footage showed Shionuma pouring something on the machine, leading to his arrest on Sunday when he returned to the pachinko parlor. Police said he has denied the allegation and quoted him as saying he doesn’t remember because he believes he was drunk on Saturday.

Today I learned that Pachinko machines have alarms capable of detecting when someone is peeing on them.

One can’t expect to go very far in this world without being able to distinguish coffee from urine.

Can you imagine getting so angry at a pachinko machine that you go to the bathroom, pee in a cup, bring it back and pour it on the machine? Very strange.

What a crazy guy. LOL. The best what you can do is not to enter these pachinko parlors at all. Avoid them. It helps to keep your money in your wallet and to avoid find yourself in trouble.
