Saga Teens Attack Police Car With Food
Seven male teenagers were arrested this week for making a prank emergency call to police in Saga Prefecture in order to lure out a patrol car and pelt it with eggs, tofu and potatoes.
According to police in the city of Imari in Saga Prefecture, at a little after midnight on December 21st one of the teens called the police emergency contact number (110) with a fake complaint about noisy motorcycles. A police officer was then dispatched in order to investigate the complaint, however, as the patrol car was travelling along national highway number 204, the 7 teens began to throw eggs, tofu and potatoes at it from a structure located above the highway. The police officer in the patrol car was unharmed but the patrol car was damaged in about 10 different places.
Police were able to obtain security camera footage which led to the arrest of the teens. By the 24th, police had arrested all 7 teenagers, who ranged in age from 17 to 18, on charges of property damage and obstruction of public duty.
Thankfully, no one was hurt but this story just goes to show that teens can be pretty stupid regardless of their nationality. I bet they’re wishing they had just cooked up those ingredients and had themselves a nice dinner instead of throwing that stuff at a police car.
