A retiree has been arrested in Japan, Because he annoyed the employees of his telephone company with around 24,000 calls.

After 71-year-old Akitoshi Okamoto called more than 400 times last week on the free customer service number of his telephone company KDDI, the company had enough and contacted the police. A spokesman for the Tokyo police told the news agency AFP, he had been arrested for “fraudulent business obstruction” on Tuesday.

According to the Japanese media, Okamoto had called KDDI tens of thousands of times over the past two years because, in his view, the telephone company had violated the terms of the contract. He vented his anger and repeatedly insulted KDDI employees. “He demanded that KDDI employees come to his house and apologize for the breach of contract,” said the police spokesman.

He might be on to something there. I think I will also start demanding that the phone company people come to my place and apoogize in person every time they mess something up. 

 
 
 
 

A comprehensive search by the police happened on Saturday evening because a young man ran out of his family’s apartment wearing inappropriate clothing

A 20-year-old from the north German county of Verden, who had left his home in a drunken state after a family quarrel, triggered a major police deployment. According to police reports, the reason was the young man did not wear “weather-resistant clothing”.

Relatives had been worried about him because he was dressed only in a T-shirt in November. They contacted the police and an extensive search was initiated, in which a police helicopter was briefly involved. After several hours, around 0:10 o’clock, the drunk idiot was found by relatives asleep in the car of a neighbor.

Ryan Bishop from Arizona, USA, was approaching the Pima County Fairgrounds entrance in his car on Sunday afternoon when suddenly the window on the driver’s side shattered, according to Tucson station KOLD TV.

“I had a very loud explosion happen in my window,” Bishop told the station. He said that at first he thought a rock broke it, and he decided to pull over and inspect. I opened the door, took a look around it and then I hear this ‘Pop! Pop! Pop! Pop!’” he said. So I got in my car and continued driving.”

He pulled over and called the police, who soon arrived at the scene. They discovered a bullet sitting on his dashboard, and that’s when Bishop focused on the taco he had been eating when the shots rang out. Bishop told KOLD he normally drives with his car window down with his arm on the window ledge, the same spot where the bullet hit his car.

“I’m pretty sure [eating a] taco saved my life, or at least stopped my arm from getting blown apart,” he said. “I had the window closed because I didn’t want pieces of the taco flying around.”

This is not the first time Tacos have saved people’s lives. In March, an Oregon man and his dog survived five days stuck in the snow by living off Taco Bell sauce. Also in March, a Florida man’s need for more hot sauce saved his life when a car crashed into a Taco Bell outlet right where he had just been sitting.

52-year-old Belinda Gail Fondren from Louisiana was charged with filing or maintaining false public records.

Police said a woman who worked at a medical clinic has been arrested for selling fake doctor’s notes to high school students so they can get out of class.

Vernon Parish Sheriff Sam Craft says Fondren was selling medical excuses for $20 each. He says two students at Evans High School in Evans, Louisiana received excuses on 14 occasions.

Deputies said a physician received a call from Vernon Parish School Board about the absence notes. He told deputies that he didn’t treat the students nor did he authorize the excuses.

Craft says Fondren worked in a clerical position at the clinic. I think that her business genius is wasted in this position. They should put her in charge of the hospital.
