Talk about frustration. I wonder did he teach at an all girls school?

Totally unnecessary throw-in line: "Monden was drunk at the time."

haha, there is no better door to have chosen to smash.

Classic! I would assume, "blind drunk at the time" and reliving his youth. No one hurt, presumably?

Haven't seen a one sentence headline chocked this full of intrigue for quite some time. I can't help but wonder why he wanted to get naked before before fleeing. Did he think he would be able to run faster?

Comedy gold. How to ruin your career 101.

And this insane perverted Japanese guy have finally decided to come out of his closet of frustration and do something totally ridiculous. Everyone, I present to you all the real present day Japan.

He smashed the door and was able to flee naked. What was he 'wearing', his socks?

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

He must have left his wallet behind, unless he put it some place where the sun don`t shine.

Love it! Whatever you ay think about japan there is nowhere else I can think of that would produce such fabulous headlines!

I believe there is going to be a vacancy for a school soccer coach in Hokkaido coming up soon, if anyone is interested...

"why he wanted to get naked before before fleeing:"

the broken glass evidence was all over his clothes, hence, running around naked would be the less conspicous/suspicious option. He could just blend in with the other Saturday night drunks!

Ha ha ha!

I've never seen the name Monden before.

Oh yes they call him The Streak! Fastest thing on two feet. Unless he's from Hakodate.

gotta watch out for them teachers!!! bunch o' lunatics!

maybe they were trying to make him sing kimigayo at his drinking party and he decided to strike out at the authorities on the way home....

More information needed in this screwy guy's intentions. Hates cops?

He ain't crude, Boogity, Boogity He ain't lewd, Boogity, Boogity He's just in the mood to run in the nude

Maybe the guy was a Terminator from the future and was trying escape to his own time. You know, Arnold first appeared in the buff in the original Terminator.

The temperature in Hakodate was about 10C at that time. He must have a fever by now. That shows again how dangerous alcohol can be.

People don't get a fever from the cold. They get it from a virus...

Having a meltdown and streaking, now imagine if a gaijin smashed a police car in and ran around buck naked...wonder what the outcome would have been?

Somethings about Japanese people are strange is he actually a transgender man

Why was he trying to flee nude? - and why was nude chasing him? If he and nude had just stood and shook hands, it would have made for a John Lennonesque photo.

I'm not condoning this type of activity, but I gotta admit, it's pretty entertaining compared to the everyday hum-drum news in the crime section. And all you J-bashers accuse the Japanese of being "sheeple"...

0 ( +2 / -2 )

He wasn't even born when streaking was all the rage. Wasn't it 1974? By the way, why did he go to the koban in the first place?

0 ( +1 / -1 )

Tahoochi - They are sheeple. Except for when they're drunk, naked and kicking down doors... :-)

PS: More women should do that...

Wow, always fun to read. I mean sure we've had our share of crazy criminals but Japan has the much more fun ones. All that happened recently in the city where I live (in the US) was a homeless guy (nowhere near drunk or senile) taking off all his clothes at one of the city water fountains and calmly proceeding to bathe himself, soap and everything. This guy definitely topped our guy who just wanted to be clean! Blind drunk and smashing down doors to cop stations! Thats gotta be the life!

that got their attention for sure..

And no charges for running away with his Johnny swinging in the wind. Classic Japan!

What were the cops doing? He kicked the door in had time to strip and flee. Were they under the table?

1 ( +1 / -0 )

As a teacher, I can kind of understand how this guy feels. I want to do the same thing.

@noirgaijin,And no charges for running away with his Johnny swinging in the wind..drunk and cold=shrinkagex2,not much swinging would have been happening !

Maybe his hero was that famous alcoholic nudist, the SMAP dude - Tsuyoshi Kusai-nagi!

"Maybe the guy was a Terminator..."

Ha ha ha ha ha ha

Did he think he could run faster without the weight of his clothes to hamper him?

This guy is a champion! Another great "Only in Japan" anecdote. The fact that he was a soccer coach too just adds to this story's credibility. Why do all the "yanki"s in Japan somehow have something to do with soccer? You'll never see someone from the baseball club act a fool.

PS. I love how getting nude was an afterthought. "oh! I smashed a door! A cop door! Let's just add insult to injury by running in the wind with my Wang out!" priceless.

At least Japanese criminals are entertaining. :)
