A 41-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of threatening to kill a man who had warned him not to drive recklessly, police said Friday.
The incident took place on Sept 30 on a road in the city of Fukaya, Saitama Prefecture. Tamotsu Hasegawa, who works as a caregiver for the elderly, was driving his car recklessly by going too near the truck in front of him on several occasions and repeatedly honking his horn, Fuji TV reported.
The 26-year-old truck driver stopped, got out and warned Hasegawa to stop tailgating him. Police said Hasegawa responded by pointing scissors at the man’s neck and threatened to kill him if he didn't shut up.
The truck driver filed a report with the police which led to Hasegawa’s arrest.© Japan Today
