Most people will say don't remember what happened.

Well, the drunk ones that don't remember what happened say that.

Isn't that assaulting a police officer?

LOL! Bad mood huh? Funny way of expressing it.

Animal. Hope he enjoys the interrogations by the cops - hopefully for a few weeks.

Why are the Japanese losing respect for one another?

It is troubling

@Disillusioned, in Australia that would constitute assault, whereas ‘obstruction’ relates to ‘getting in their way’ and stopping them from doing their jobs.

Interesting how it is dealt with here, whether the guy will get a fine or not.

You do realize 99.999% of Japanese people do not go around spitting on police officers, right?

Nasty. But he was in his home so highly provoked.

What ever the circumstances this was disgusting and could leave that officer catching something. This would be a criminal assault in most countries, but in far too many, the police reaction would have been very different.

What a silly thing to do. If he was in some kind of trouble before he will be in a lot more now, won’t he.

Does this man still have his original teeth? If so, he is lucky.

I remember a goober I worked with at the factory back in my immediate post-college days back in Kansas.

OK (I didn't like him, but acceptable) UNTIL he got drunk (which was often), and then he was a violent jerk. One time the local PD (who were pretty chill as it was a college town) got called on a drunk and disorderly and in the course of being arrested he spat on one of the arresting officers.....

He came to regret that in the not distant future. They cuffed his hands behind his back and his legs together (he was being very uncooperative) and then carried him off the front porch one officer on each arm and 2 more carrying his legs.

As they were going down the steps of the porch, the leading officers who just happened to be the ones on his arms slipped "dropped" him face first onto the concrete steps while the following officers did not.

That was the end of every one of his teeth upper and lower from his incisors forward. oops.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.

"Most people will say don't remember what happened."

Well, the drunk ones that don't remember what happened say that.

It's more like a common refrain from those arrested who do n ot want to admit they did whatever it is they were arrested for, drunk or not.

Wait, so there is no possibility any of these people actually don't remember?

What does this term 'blackout drunk' mean then?

And if blackout drunk means what I thought it did, then do you think that people who can't remember what happened should lie and make something up?
