A Japanese man was recently arrested for calling the cops as many as 2,060 times in a short span of 9 days, only to abuse and shout at the cops. The 67-year-old man in the matter was obviously not too fond of the cops and the police system in his area, and thus, decided to lash out at them on calls and calling them thousands of times in less than two weeks. Frustrated with the abusive calls, the cops finally arrested him.
The incident was reported from Japan’s Kawagachi, a city located in Saitama Prefecture, and the Japanese man in question made the abusive calls between September 30 and October 8. The police department, which receives one call in at least six minutes, wasted 27 hours on the phone with the angry Japanese man.
The 67-year-old arrested man rang the cops and called them “tax thieves”, “big stupid a******s”, and similar abusive slangs. The cops claim that as the man forced them to waste 27 hours on him, he is guilty of obstructing police business.
After being arrested earlier on November 28, the man was taken into questioning, where he admitted to his actions. “I knew the police would come for me someday,” he had said, after getting arrested.
